Kinetic typography is the art of expressing by means of animated text. Literally, the term means moving text. It is done by manipulating and dynamically displaying text on a screen in a way that will help you express an emotion, a message or an idea eloquently.
The technique of kinetic typography has become more popular in recent years. Graphic designers that are skilled in After Effects have, at their disposal, infinite potential in making words and letters move in wonderful ways. This can be very powerful e.g. for corporate adverts. The essence of kinetic typography though is in capturing the ambiance of the subject through the addition of subtle alterations.
Below, I have compiled a list of 20 kinetic typography examples to give you some food for thought.
