Wouldn't It Be Nice - Kinetic Typography

Wouldn’t It Be Nice is one of everyone’s favorite tracks by the Beach Boys and this animation of the song matches its joie de vivre so well, perhaps because it was such a personal project. Joe Humpay (who describes himself as just another film student trying to get by) created it as a Christmas present to his girlfriend, Jess. It is a kinetic typography of one of her favorite groups.

It was his first shot at doing a much more classical song for a type project and his first personal project in a long time. It comes together really well and is one of the better examples (and certainly more colorful) of kinetic typography that I have seen.

It looks like a de facto proposal to us! If so, we hope that Joe lets us know whether Jess said yes!
