Chinese designer Tao Chen designed this fantastic Chinese Gothic typeface whilst studying in Paris. The typeface characteristics is based on the gothic script or also known as “Blackletter” which was and is still is used in some extent in western Europe. It is interesting to see how well the two (Blackletter style and Chinese characters) perform together when merged into one typeface.

Chinese characters number in the tens of thousands and take years to develop. It would be great to see a typefaces such as the one Chen designed it in its full beauty.

I don’t know of any other Chinese gothic typeface out there apart for this one. If you know of any other please drop us a line below in the comment field.
