    A two-and-a-half minute type animation about the daily routine of my life – as a student at Belmont University, and as a freelance animator outside of class.

    I went through several fonts in the beginning stages. I finally landed on a monospaced font, so words of the same length could stack neatly. I picked Odisseia Bold by Rodrigo Saiani because of its humanistic features. The zero, for example, is not slashed. Since the entire animation is only type, the visual language of the type was important. I chose to only use lowercase letters for readability and looks. I knew I wanted to use one single case to have an even balance. All capitalized words looked too blocky and started to feel the same. The descenders and ascenders in the lowercase fit that bill.
