Kinetic Typography of John Carpenter’s The Thing

ADN 400 Design Studio

Professor Mike Bissinger

Adobe After Effects

Spring 2015

Final project assignment for Sophomore Design Studio that combined Graphic Design elements as well as animation techniques utilizing tools within Adobe After Effects. The project was to create a motion typography animation that places an emphasis on the type rather than visual language of the scene we were using. For me John Carpenter’s horror classic, The Thing, felt like the perfect match. I wanted to emphasize the feeling of isolation and general hopelessness that the movie depicts as well as paying homage to the source material through the incorporation of various cold weather elements.
