I must say the inclusion of the “Messages by Dillon Francis” truly baffles me. It looks ugly, cheap and unconsidered. It definitely does not fit in with the quality of other work on display here.
Mick, with this overview, we aimed to cover the range of interesting typography in 2013, and also the variety in taste of our various staff members, to some extent. Of course it is a subjective selection, and you are free to disagree and welcome to name your own personal favorites here. “Messages” is unusual on a conceptual level, in that the music clip is exclusively made up of characters from Apple Color Emoji. Being multicolored and animated, it may not look like that, but it’s in fact a purely typographical video. We found that remarkable — and funny.
