Typeface Portfolio vol.3 I CHINESE CHESS

  • 创作背景:

    Creative background:
    By chance, I saw a 20-year-old girl in Tik Tok. She has a superb chess skill and often beats a master chess player. Once upon a time, very few young people play chess nowadays. Old people are playing on the streets. I was wondering if the ancient Chinese traditional game could be rejuvenated by design, and young people would like it too.
    So how to make chess younger? First of all, the chess records and rules cannot be changed. What can change is the chess font. Chinese characters come from pictographs. Each character represents a specific meaning. If you want to make Chinese characters interesting, you can make the glyphs interesting, or combine them with other interesting graphics. The former has too many predecessors, and I Choose the latter. After thinking about it for a long time, I found a symbol, emoji, which is used by young people today. In normal chat, there are always many emojis in the communication app. At the same time, this is also an internationally recognized expression.
    Combining Chinese characters with emoji's expressions cleverly, Chinese characters are not traditional, but become humorous and humorous. For foreign friends who do not know Chinese characters, this combination can also identify one or two, which will not only help the youthful fun of Chinese chess, but also allow more people to know Chinese characters.
