Handle with Care

The Ming Child
interactive installation, zine, poster: ink on paper, 2019.

I am a Chinese designer from Malaysia. My practice is focusing on English capital serif typography design. The inspiration for this set of fonts is based on the Chinese digital characters 'Song' or 'Ming'. With these I hope to discover my identity and background. The cross elements of the diverse cultures which I had experienced inspired me to design this set of English font with Chinese character features. I take the challenge to focus on the topic which I am not familiar with it. My practice involves ink print e.g. poster and interactive form of installation art in this type of font design.
