Final Cut: films condensed into a single frame

This is a great idea: using a camera with a really long exposure, Jason Shulman captured every frame of a film, creating eerie abstract images, some with shadows of scenes from the film, others with nothing but beautiful washes of colour.

Neat typographic links

A couple of useful links for graphic design students. One from a current BAGCer (thanks Izzy!), helps you find fonts that are similar to one another, based on “an experiment to see how machine learning can address challenges in design”.

The second, from BAGC graduate Steve Chen, is this site, mixing fonts to great, sometimes dissonant effect. Thanks Steve!
