Munken Creator

Web-Based App for Creating Font Animations

Author: JN_HG

With Raising Questions and the Munken Sans typeface, the Swedish paper manufacturer Arctic Paper invites you to playfully develop and experiment with typographic design using the Munken Creator. The typographic artworks inspire to think beyond the boundaries of how we communicate.

Questions are the answers of our time, because good questions are messages of change. Raising Questions invites to create and share visual messages using the newly developed Munken Creator web-based animation application under the hashtag #munkencreator.

In 2020, Munken developed the typeface Munken Sans. Now new in 2022, Munken launches the Munken Creator, which is giving creators unimagined possibilities to develop and experiment with the font to create visually animated messages. These visuals can then be used for classic print or web projects. Images and backgrounds can be combined with type editing in a nearly unlimited number of ways with the animations directed or remixed in real time.

You can save not only images, but even videos in WebM and MP4 formats and use them in a variety of ways—from book projects to projections on house walls, there are almost no limits. The possibility to combine it with augmented reality allows the digital world to accentuate the tactile analogue experience.

For the launch of the Munken Creator, a large-format magazine will be published featuring artworks created using the Web-based application.
With the augmented reality app Artivive, the digital level is combined with the magazine design to create new dimensions of perception.
