About the author
About the author
Hi! I’m Jeroen Krielaars!
I am the founder of Animography, a type-foundry for animated typefaces. Since the start of Animography in 2010, I’ve been constantly experimenting with animated typefaces, together with type-designers, motion-designers and developers. Over the years we have created a flexible setup within After Effects that allows you to type with motion.
This resulted in our own collection of animated typefaces, and bespoke work for clients such as Nike, Adidas, NatWest Bank, Philadelphia 76’ers, Brewdog, The Game Awards and others.
Join me in this course to explore the intersection of typography and motion-design.
What will I learn in Animated Typefaces?
We’ll start off by laying a basic foundation without even touching After Effects. I’ll show you the tools we will use, and explain how to approach your project as a modular design system. I will also cover some typography lingo that you might not be familiar with, to make sure we speak the same language.
• Course outline;
• Overview of the tools we will be using;
• Motion design theory;
• Essential typography lingo.
Create a Basic Animated Typeface
To get familiar with the process, we will create a very simple animated typeface. There will be lots of room to experiment and add your own style. This lesson is all about getting to know the setup of an animated typeface.
• Creating a typeface template;
• Animating the typeface;
• Using precomps;
• Adding kerning & metrics;
• Adding stylistic alternates;
• Using your own font.
By adding controllers, you can easily customize the color and other features of your animated typeface. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to use expressions and expression controls to create a flexible system.
• Create basic controllers;
• Mark controller expressions;
• Duplicate controllers;
• Better controllers with Pseudo Effects.
Improve Your Workflow
Work faster, smarter, and with more precision. I’ll show you my most valuable tips, tricks, and tools for working with vectors and expressions.
• Using Overlord to switch between Illustrator and After Effects;
• Best practices for clean vector shapes;
• Recommended scripts to automate your workflow and save time.
• Breakdown of Prota;
• Breakdown of Vesterbro;

Create Animated Typeface
You’ll apply all the know-how you learned in the previous lessons to create an animated typeface in your own style. This time it will be complete with built-in controllers, a large character set, kerning and stylistic alternates.
In this lesson, I’ll guide you step by step from start to finish. Along the way you’ll be checking off each part of the process from a checklist, so you can monitor your progress.
Export to the JSX-format
This lesson requires compCode and is totally optional.
Create Typographic Loops
Now that your animated typeface is finished, it’s time to have some fun with it. In this lesson, I will show you how to make 4 different typographic loops. 3 of them are made in After effects, but for the final one, we will take a trip to Cinema 4D.
