Andreas Gysin for Novoline 7” – Building patterns and rhythms with Javascript

Created by Andreas Gysin, the project is a micro site for the dark, powerful and loud sound 7” record release by the German artist Novoline. While designing the cover Andreas was asked to leave a tiny white area somewhere on the back-cover to write the edition number from one to one-hundred, by hand. Instead of putting just an empty square Andreas started thinking about 100 tiny dots to black-out with a pencil, or LCD like system to hand-color. Eventually this small aspect became the main idea for the cover which now hosts a big two-digits number.

The grid used to design the initial numbers became also the base for a whole character-set used in the animation. Two versions of the characters were created: an obvious-one, a bit squared, and a more diversified-one with letters of different heights. Andreas decided to use the squared one (less interesting in individual characters) because it worked better when used in the animation layout.
