"You know, I couldn't even manage a goddamned sunset without a little competition from the Firebird Motel sign. Which, relatively speaking, was bigger to begin with and stayed lit one hell of a lot longer."

  • Found this site while searching for another artist. Completely distracted now. Animated typography experiment "Six Types", 2009, by graphic designer Takashi Okada. 

    His portfolio site is here. Another page of his, a bit more unfocused and surreal, is here. Allow large-ish chunks of time for the sites to load, even by today’s speed standards.
