Currently using ID card was issued at the end of 2005. Typeface choice for headers is BiauKai, and for contents is PMingLiu regardless the language’s in Chinese or English. Tracking and line-height change randomly on different spots, and header is pressed disproportionally when longer than two words. Distances between contents and margins on each sides are different, and the shortest one of which is only 1mm long.
Preparing to issue on 2019, the assessing new version of eID card has new elements like chip, barcode and Machine Readable Zone. Considering security issue, new card also puts a copy of mugshot and signature on. Information like parents’ or spouse’s name, military service, birthplace and address is deleted. Instead of BiauKai and PMingLiu, it uses sans-serif typefaces for a brighter look, but the disordered layout with no clear logic is a total mess.
