  • The aim of this project was to create a front inspired by the traditional Chinese tangram. The tangram is made up of strictly 7 pieces and must be contained within a square. Much like the original tangram we wanted to finish with a product that could be used as a game for children or a tool for design professionals. Each letter of the font was constructed by one or all of the 7 pieces in the tangram and only uses one tangram at a time meaning none of the shapes were be repeated unless they were components of the tangram itself. 

    The following images show the new interpretation of the tangram and the font which was constructed from its components. As a way of testing the function of the font we also compiled a poster and a documentation booklet which explains the process and studies which led to the final solution.
