Ira Glass offers really inspiring advice to people struggling with a gap between their tastes and their abilities in the video The Gap by photographer Daniel Sax. The video features a series of typographic visualisations set to Glass’ words. Sax created the video after watching another typographic video of Glass’ talk by artist David Shiyang Liu. Both videos are based on part 3 of the PRI video series ‘Ira Glass on Story Telling’.
Lovely piece of work that elegantly tells the basic of good design. Covering the basics in under 3 minutes. Thank you Erica Gorochow for sharing.
Example tipped by a Welsh friend – cheers Rich! What makes it stand out is its a simple animation that helps to enhance the learning experience. In less than 3 minutes you get an idea of the roll out plans and the various types of connection that are coming.

This is a series of short animations that introduce six key design movements, from Gothic Revival to Postmodernism. It makes a great case for simple, short, video based learning. With the inclusion of a diagnostic test to understand your design preferences adding that extra bit of learner engagement. Really love the simplicity and presentation.
To illustrate here are a couple of videos. Try watching them without sound, then with. The difference is surprising.
Poor sound design can undo hard work in an instant. Get it right and it can do wonderful things to enhance, re-enforce or even change a message.
This post continues the general theme of visual voice. Please comment with your thoughts.
There’s something about the shooting and story telling that makes this a really engaging film.
Example of web, brand and video working together in harmony. The better the design the more invisible it becomes. When you consciously take in all the small touches in this learning site, it’s hard not to be impressed. Click Here.
