The Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Animated Typography
Exactly 60 years ago, on December 10, 1948, the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. To celebrate this 60th anniversary The Human Rights Action Center commissioned graphic and motion designer Seth Brau to produce an animation for promotional use and activism. Seth faced the mammoth task of translating no less than thirty articles into a coherent and fluent animated typography piece. Using only Helvetica with stylised illustrations, in simple black on a tan background, he created a short film that is both elegant and experimental in scale, and in its use of type and symbolism.
