Glossy: an Animated Typeface


Studio Leader
Alexandra Chalmers Braithwaite
‘Glossy’ is an animated typeface that was produced with practice-led research in my Honours year of 2021. This research has been compiled into a dissertation called ‘The Typographic Aesthetic Style of Climate Change Visual Communication’ that showcases a base font called ‘Corporate Climate’. This base font fits within the climate change visual communication aesthetic of climate governing bodies and can be experimented with design methods such as animation. ’Corporate Climate’ is free to download for grassroots climate organisations to experiment with and use.
