The number of strokes in a Chinese character ranges from one to 30 and a typical character set contains more than 20,000 characters. Therefore it was no small feat to ensure that all characters share a similar optical density throughout the XinGothic typeface design.

The XinGothic typeface took over four years to create and consist of both Chinese and Latin characters. This bilingual typeface, was designed by Sammy Or, Julius Hui, Benny Law and Cherry Chao and was released end of 2011.

The structure and proportions of Xin Gothic’s Chinese characters are based on the Kai calligraphic script from the Han Dynasty. Xin Gothic’s latin characters are designed specifically for multilingual typesetting of Chinese and languages that use the Latin character set. Worth also checking out is the Bilingual typeface Collator.

Hi Kristen! I’m inspired by great digsen too, and art. Graphic digsen and collage is what usually gets me the most excited. Visiting contemporary art exhibits is one of my favorite things to do that makes me feel relaxed and energized at the same time.

Really too bad, I was hoping for a cheaper and more specialized version of the already great IDEA.Am I able to import my Astella projects into IDEA now that it has been abandoned?

You wake up at Seatac, SFO, LAX. You wake up at O’Hare, Dallas-Fort Worth, BWI. Pacific, mountain, central. Lose an hour, gain an hour. This is your life, and it’s ending one minute at a time. You wake up at Air Harbor International. If you wake up at a different time, in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?

Word on the street is that part of the rental contract for the old Razorback theatre stipulates that whoever rents it in the future can’t make it a movie theatre. Lame. I was hoping for a sweet art film house/ dollar theatre or something.

we do not torture, but so did Bush, and extraordinary rendition still goes on. He speaks of international cooperation, but continues to flout international law. He speaks of the danger of returning to the failed policies of the past, but in too many ways, he just put a new varnish on those.

Even today, Mormon offshoot groups are still being persecuted for marrying too many women, or for marrying people too young. Ironic that at one end marriage is being suppressed, and at the other it is being “liberated.”Pretty funny, huh? Two women marrying is okay, but marrying two women is not. Where is that in the constitution, again?
