type2: Final Typographic Motion Video


Beautiful Things from Mary Lim on Vimeo.

"I want to make beautiful things, even if nobody cares. That's my intent." -Saul Bass

I chose this particular quote because of Bass' simple desire to make beautiful things. Dealing with the motivation to design, an architectural floor plan seemed fitting to the subject. The video begins with a black screen, just like a blank slate, and constantly refers back to Bramante's floor plan of New St. Peters in some way.
The personal design process of this made me realize a couple things: that I enjoy designs that involve the viewer to put together pieces of the puzzle to make the whole and that I need to work on my time management. Generally, deciding on an idea takes a long time for me, especially because I want everything to be perfect. However, this takes time out of my production time, giving me less of an opportunity to fix and edit. I need to work on quickening my design process.
