For your inspiration and enjoyment:
In Max Boam's class, one of our assignments was to find examples of type that did not use actual fonts. Combining that assignment with the one to find an example of description, I stumbled upon this beautiful little piece of work. Directed by Kris Moyes for the Softlightes' song "Heart Made of Sound". It's brilliant.
A better (but slower, depending on your connection) version can be downloaded from Kris Moyes' website. Here's the link: http://www.kmoyes.com/softlightes/hmos_480.mov. Enjoy!
