Animating type by hand.


We are Gareth Smith and Jenny Lee, graphic designers for film and television. We're best known for our title sequence work for Juno, Up in the Air and Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist. We love hand-made typography, and often incorporate it into our own work.

We started Wiggletype so we could share our love of animated typography with fellow creators. We know how long it takes to create authentic, hand-made type, and want to help you save time and money on your animation projects.

Wiggletype typefaces are created using stop-motion animation techniques. Each character is hand-drawn four times. The drawings are scanned, then meticulously prepared in After Effects, resulting in Quicktimes and PNG image sequences that you can use in your work.


There are currently two Wiggletype typefaces available:

We hope you enjoy using Wiggletype as much as we do! If you have any questions, please send us a note below.
