CLIENT:

YEAR: 2013

WHAT I DID:
typeface design

A kitschy display face that evokes the strokes of written Simplified Mandarin.

 
 
 

A display face designed for the Peranakan takeout restaurant, Nyonya. The letterforms draw from Mandarin characters.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The type specimen takes its cue from the hanging scrolls that had a substantial presence in the art of East and Southeast Asian countries.
