Roof Tile Font (Washuli)
The Font designs from the roof tile
Tiles are one of the materials of ancient Chinese architecture, each of which is made up of the same individual. They can be derived from a variety of simple shape, so the use of the characteristics of the reconstruction of the elements of the experiment. To create a new font, we named it Washuli.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This is a font graphic design, it is different from the simple font design. The computer font information of Chinese characters is scarce, this design study can re discover the unique charm of Chinese characters from the point of view of graphics. To encourage more Chinese fans to develop a broader design vision.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The difficulty lies in the design of the Chinese character recognition and the ability to control the graphics, because in the creation process needs to constantly adjust the stroke structure. At the same time, the content of the font to convey information, but also reflects the charm of the font art, but also to maintain the structure of the tile material form. So the difficulty lies in finding a balance between the three.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project was completed in January 2016 in Guangdong, Shantou, Chinese, the initial stage of the experiment, one is about 56 words, in March Design521 published and recommended to design the youth home page of selected works, selected after the Chinese Graphic Designers Association "Chinese Design Yearbook" in tenth volumes.
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The tile is made of soil, and the block material of the movable type printing is originally a soil. In the process of the creation of the idea, the same attributes between the two will be extracted. Thus, the tile is used as the element to fuse the essence of the movable printing. To carry out a new structure of Chinese characters. Let the Oriental elements tell the story of the East, the new font species, and the existence of this species to find the modern meaning.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Research on the development of font design in computer system
walishu, Font experiment, Creation of Chinese characters, Font design, Graphics and fonts
The research method of the font shape, in order to supplement the Chinese character library as the purpose of this design. From the Chinese character "pictographic" consciousness to open up thinking, research and design of the creative process, the structure of Chinese characters stroke adjustment. Under the premise of retaining the original word recognition function to further enhance the convenience of its modeling and writing, and then in the perspective of graphics to solve the purpose of text content information dissemination. This form can be more easily applied to outdoor media, product image and packaging, as well as the design of three-dimensional space decoration, graphics to convey the text of the way to enrich the diversity of design.
The difficulty of the design of this project is to control the font shape of Chinese characters, the process needs to carry out a number of font review, structural adjustment, so as to ensure that the basic font information and recognition.
