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.

走在街上隨處可見指示牌
它們告訴我們方向、位置,引導我們到達目的地。
假如人生是一趟旅程
指示牌寫著的「不准」、「嚴禁」、「小心」
是要提醒我們人生會遇到不同的困難和阻礙嗎?
在這漫漫的人生旅途中,又有誰可以給我們作指引?
我覺得文字往往是表達情感最直接的方式,同時亦能容易與他人產生共鳴。
因比, 創作了這套字體提醒自己和他人:將來並不可怕。
以傳統鏤空噴字方式並加入中文筆劃元素,創作了一套充滿香港特色的英文鏤空字體。
