Say it with Dance

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

In a type foundry studio in the Netherlands, there's a woman in a white suit dancing letters in front of a black background.

She's part of Typotheque, a studio run by Peter and Johanna Biľak in the Hague, where she performs choreographed poses based on letters (a typeface Typotheque calls "Dance Writer") and allows users to send animated messages through an email or through an iPhone or iPad app.

See your own message danced here and watch a sample video after the jump.
