"The History of Typography: Animated Short" by Forrest Media | Video


Some graphic design students may be wondering why their typography lecture did not look more like this short animation by Forrest Media. Perhaps the lecturers themselves did not understand the power of good design. We will not elaborate too much on our education system here, but what we can conclude is Ben Barrett-Forrest, founder of Forrest Media, made an extremely entertaining video about the history of typography. Even if you do not have much knowledge about typography or graphic design, this five-minute clip underneath will give you a good grasp on the origins of typography.
