As a farewell to 2011, we have selected 32 brilliant videos from the last five issues of Motion Gallery, which were themed around Network Branding, Projection Mapping, Mixed Media, Infographics and 8Bit Video-Games Technology, as well as from the online channel IdN Onair. This review of the best work to have appeared over the course of a year will become an annual feature.


We bring you the best of the best!

Out of the 170+ videos from the last five issues of Motion Gallery and our online channel IdN Onair, we have selected 32 that we think are worth watching again – the pick of the crop. Apart from all the stunning work in this "Best of the Best" collection, Argentinian artist Mariano Sidoni and the creative collective Carne Hueso present an exclusive process video for IdN readers only. Plus fascinating logo animations, music videos, TV commercials… all in one DVD.

"Good design is one that benefits all mankind, whether its influence is large or small. Those who have exiled themselves to big foreign cities such as New York, Paris and Tokyo, and have won lots of awards, will never be an example for me, because I think there is still a lot for me to do here and a long way to go."

As Types Grow Older – Re-issuring 'Sadness' and 'Grimoire' – Cologne, Germany

As Types Grow Older – Re-issuring 'Sadness' and 'Grimoire' – Cologne, Germany

Felix Braden’s very first typefaces 'Sadness' and 'Grimoire' have just been published in new and revised versions at Myfonts. After the tragic end of the established Fountain Type Foundry he had to ask himself the following question: Is there still any justification for the existence of his 20 year old fonts? 'Sadness' was based on experiments during his stay at the Trier College of Design, 'Grimoire' on the other hand combines two seemingly contradicting principles – calligraphic and constructive ideas – and makes them work together. The font is based on a modular system but simulates a handwritten typeface. Both fonts are available for €5 at Myfonts with a introductory discount of 80% until 19 MAY.
