Created in After Effects from an illustration done in Illustrator.
The typeface used is ‘Optima’ – a beautiful font, designed by Hermann Zapf, over a period of three years from 1952 – 1955. Optima is possibly Zapf’s most successful typeface, but certainly not the one he’s most well-known for. That accolade must go to Zapf Dingbats.
Ben Schott’s ‘Scott’s Quintessential Miscellany’ came in rather handy for the knife part names too.
