Rolling Pen & Underlight

image

This project is a collaboration with Ale Paul to present his new font Rolling Pen (Link Behance).

Don’t say I didn’t warn you guys.

Neons in Threedee:

(First: Ale Paul is my friend.)

So it’s been a while since Ale’s been busting my nuts on this new font he wanted to present as if they were neon lights.

At first, for example, we’d hang out riding our bikes and he’d shyly ask: -Is it a hassle to make neons in 3D?-. He’d ask as if though he didn’t want it done.

As time went by, he started asking it in a more subtle way: -hey! Want to make some threedees’?? C’mon! Some neons! C’mon dude, it’s a walk in the park for you, they’re just little tubes-.

In the end, he sent over images of real neons showing me how good the script font went with neons.

I obviously wanted to do something with him, but I was playing it dumb because I wasn’t interested in doing something in 3D just because, so I asked him if he was interested in doing it, not only as a typographical specimen for his new typeface if not also as part of a curation for the Project Author’s Bay I’m following through with Fer.

This was how we started this project formed in part by a series called ‘Underlight’ that includes 5 spaces with 5 different words made with the Rolling Pen, in neon, narrating a small concept and on the other hand an interview/profile/mini-documentary where I try to capture the Ale Paul I know (and have as a friend) whom I believe to be great for other people to know.

Here’s a teaser of the interview on Youtube:

About “Underlight”:

At the beginning I had in mind doing something filmed with real live neon (I was fleeing from doing 3D) and a contemporary dancer. I contacted Gaston, a friend of a friend choreographer, genius, we got together to talk (thank you, Gaston) and finally, due to timing issues, I decided to ‘adjust’ the idea. The best way was to do it in 3D. It was easier to control due to the little free time I had.

There will be another opportunity to do something similar in the future.

So what I did was to make a quick 3D with elements from libraries to show Ale to see if he was interested in walking down this road, and I sent it to him:

Epilogue.

In the interview, some of the neons, will be animated in 3D by the PepperMelon team, more precisely by mister Martín Dasnoy. (Because beware, doing a styelframe and an animation of that styleframe are two separate worlds)

I hope you guys liked it, I’ve been working on it for several weeks and on the interview that will be out in a few days.

Love you guys.
