Who says typography has to be dull? The goal of this project was to transform a common product (in this case, a magazine) into something transformative and narratively unique. This piece is about Yuja Wang, a piano prodigy, and the type of music she composes. Yuja Wang is a relaxed yet confident, powerful, and energetic pianist. She is commonly known for her "flashy" and non-classically conforming fashion sense. The magazine spreads are followed by a series of type in motion. The typography in that series corresponds to her and other's voice inflections. The animations also incoporate imagery that is seen in the magazine spreads.
