CLIENT PERSONAL PROJECT - TYPE PRINT TYPOGRAPHY - DATE DEC 2010 - CREATIVE JASON KWAN - ART DIRECTION JASON KWAN - DESIGN JASON KWAN - A NEW WAY OF RECORDING DATES IN CHINESE - 1231 is an experimental attempt to create a Chinese character set from scratch. specially tailored for recording dates.

The creative process was a thought-provoking one, in the sense that it involved a complex language structure. It left me with a question to ponder: Does it really facilitate linguistic flexibility when one single character can represent a two-to-three-word expression? Type style originally inspired by Sammy Or's “Zhaujinti”. - Read Less
