Eggs and Sausage


A student project for a class at New York’s School of Visual ArtsJackie Lay’s neat typographic video is set to Tom Waits’ Eggs and Sausage:

In a recent interview with Jeffrey Hyatt at DesignCrave, Lay said:

“I didn’t want to be too literal with the imagery… but I did follow the loose narrative arc in the song of a man going to a late-night diner, ordering his meal off the menu and then lamenting over his unrequited love on napkins, finished off with the waitress bringing the check.”

The video was awarded a Certificate of Typographic Excellence by the Type Directors Club.
