 Personal Feeling


Signs surround us. They inform us of directions and guide us to our destinations.
However, can they really lead us to walk our path in life?
In this long journey of life, who can give us guidance?
To me words are always the most direct way to express my own feelings.
And words will evoke resonance from others.

I have designed a typeface, a set of Latin letters and Chinese characters to visualize encouraging slogans addressed to me and others in belief the future is not fearful. I use stencil font shapes because this style is common in Hong Kong to create signs. Being inspired by the Chinese version lettering design of “Post No Bill 嚴禁標貼”, I added a touch of Chinese calligraphy to the shapes of the Latin letters. I always think of why that English typeface is so dull and visually not matching with the Chinese words? This became my inspiration to add characteristics of Chinese strokes and create a set of HK style Latin letters.
