FITC Tokyo Identity

Identity and titles for design conference

Created for the 2016 FITC design and technology conference in Tokyo, the design for both the identity and titles centred around the idea of computer as possibility machine. Inspired by the work of computer graphics pioneer John Whitney and titles supremo Maurice Binder, the work aims to show the infinite possibilities brought through constraints, using only circles in various patterns of motion.

All the graphics and movement were created and outputted directly in Processing. The audio was sampled from a Bell Labs information film from the Prelinger Archive — now in the public domain — talking about the power of computers within the design process. The beepy soundtrack was made from sampling various parts of the film and then making loops in Reason to remix the composition, with various vocal samples laid over the top.
