Typographic Motion Graphics Inspired by Conan O’Brien’s Final Farewell on The Tonight Show

Using the dialogue from TV show host, Conan O’Brien’s final farewell speech on his last episode of The Tonight Show on NBC, Jacob Gilbreath created the motion graphics video featuring more than 60 tightly designed typographic layouts.

“Conan O’Brien is and will continue to be a seasoned television entertainer. After drawing inspiration from Lou Dorfsman’s Gastrotypographicalassemblage (shown below via AIGA), this concept was achieved by creating a literal wall from over 60 individual typographic layouts,” says Gilbreath. “These custom crafted layouts reference a variety of vintage type design. The combination of vintage styled typography and modern 3D letter forms, achieved in Cinema 4D, provides a contrast between old and new. This contrast emphasizes time to create a sturdy and timeless object. This solidity and timelessness is the perfect representation of Conan O’Brien.”
