12 Gorgeous Motion and Kinetic Typography Videos

Following the recent success of the Hilarious Design Related Videos from YouTube post last week, I have decided to produce another post that involves video. Motion and Kinetic Typography is becoming ever more popular – more and more blockbuster movies are heading in the right direction in the opening scenes of movies, and TV commercials are getting in on the act, too.

In this post I’m presenting you with a selection of gorgeous motion and kinetic typography based videos, all of which can be found at YouTube.

Hilarious Design Related Videos on YouTube

I caught a clip of the Graphic Designer vs Client video seen below and thought it was hilarious, and so true to the world us designers live in – there are a lot of ‘business men’ out there that don’t know what they’re talking about, and thinks a good piece of design takes no longer than 5 minutes to create and is only worth a few pound – well they’re wrong! Anyway, one thing leads to another and I got browsing YouTube. So here is a small collection of funny design related videos. If you ever have any problems with a client, send them one of the following!:

Graphic Designer vs Client

A hilarious animated sketch based on ‘one of those clients’ that don’t just appreciate us designers.

A follow-up to the previous Graphic Designer vs Client video!

Web Designer vs Client

A great video like the previous two – this time between a web designer and his client.

Life as a Graphic Designer

A fun little video re-enacting a meeting with a client – sometimes design really is like trying to please a five year old.

Slightly cheesy but quite funny rap about graphic design.

Mac vs PC Xtranormal Style

Not so much to do with design, but a great little video on the never-ending battle between Mac & PC-C-C-C’s.
