廟宇體 Temple-type
中文漢字設計 Chinese Character Design

隨著城巿的急速發展,象徵中華傳統文化的事物亦逐漸消失。在現今的城市生活環境中﹐唯有廟宇是最能保留傳統建築特色和信仰文化習俗的地方。

廟宇體由中式道教廟宇中常見的各種元素組成,包括中式建築特色、祭祀用品及神獸石像等。除了中文字本身代表著中華文化中的一部份外,亦同時呈現出中式建築風格和源遠流長的民間信仰,希望能從筆劃間表現出多一份中華文化氣息。元素取材自香港的道教廟宇或祠堂如黃大仙祠、青松觀及天后古廟等,由實景照片描圖而成,令當中的古樸韻味及其質感,也可以一一保留在字體當中。

Along with the rapid development of the city, objects that represent the traditional Chinese culture are disappearing. Within the metropolitan areas, temples are the only places that can still preserve the traditional Chinese architecture and the religious practices.

Temple-type is formed by the elements of Chinese Taoism temples, which includes the features of Chinese architectures, worship props, and statues of mythical creatures. Not only the Chinese characters themselves are representing a part of Chinese culture, they can now also carrying the other parts of culture visually, such as the architectural style and the religious traditions. The elements in the characters are traced from the photos that taken in the Chinese Taoism temples in Hong Kong. Hence, the historical traces and texture can also be kept.
