Things are moving around. Scroll, and the page moves as well — not down, but to the side. Easy enough, you’ll get the hang of it right away. It is a design move I suppose, one which is particular (sure) but also one that throws you off-balance, if only for a minute, marking something specific not generic but also, and I guess I think this is essential, it also doesn’t get in the way of using the website. Instead, it actually keeps you moving right through it, project to project.

Lots of Erin Knutson's work moves. Type falls with gravity and makes a pile at the bottom of a page in a digital poster for Gretchen Bender. Quick cuts and type that looks more like toothpaste in a series of title sequences for Vogue. Even the static things move. A cookbook for Dimes, a New York City lower east side restaurant (and hangout) finds itself in a bike basket, in a window, then in a soccer net. Paul Andrew clothes start out as abstracted flat shapes which then pull themselves away to reveal the read deal. Dancing robots and fuzzy cathode-ray-tube typography for Performance Space. Anyway, it all continues as you scroll down (I mean scroll right). Pretty much nothing does not move, as far as I can tell. 
I first came across Erin's work in the wild through a series of posters in the subway. These were part of the graphics she made for an exhibition on Rammelzee at Red Bull Arts Space. If you don‘t know Rammelzee‘s work you most certainly should. You could start here. The work is wild, typographic, futuristic, romantic. Erin’s poster catches the spirit of the work perfectly for me. I like it so much. Here (*surprise*) are her graphics, moving:

What’s all this movement about? Erin Knutson will join us in class today and we can ask her.
