Bilingual typeface – Xin GothicPosted by rod - 29.02.2012
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.
