Musical typography with Citizen Cope

It’s been a while since I’ve published any creative music videos, so I’ve embedded a new one which definitely stands out in the crowd. The track, Let The Dummer Kick, by Citizen Cope, contains exceptional animation by Artur Dimke. Artur makes great use of typography, emphasizing each individual word with an accompanying effect.

If you can’t see the video above, view it on YouTube.

Here are some of my other favourite music videos.

  1. I can’t stop watching this video man…its brilliant…great use of typography…typography brain = beauty

  2. Heh, this was just played in the closing credits of CSI Miami on Five US. Pretty sure that I prefer the typography to Caruso’s smile.

  3. Rafie,

    Glad you enjoyed it as much as I did. Keeping well lately? Hope so.


    Thanks for linking to a similar video. Will check it out shortly.

    Ben C,

    I believe ‘After Effects’ is the software most likely to have been used, but I’ve never used it, so can’t say for sure.


    Perhaps you can answer Ben C’s question. Would this video have been created using After Effects?


    I hope you’ve stopped watching it now. ;)


    Any more info on this moving type experiment you’re working on? Sounds intriguing.


    Can’t say I know who Caruso is, not being a watcher of CSI Miami, but glad you prefer the typography to his smile. :)

  4. Wow that was amazing! Love the way the words animated their meanings. I can’t get over how good that was makes me want to take up animation! That was the most impressive video I have ever seen on a design based website! The song was cool to. Well done David nice find…Still thinking about how good that was. Gonna have to watch that again :)
