設計理念  /  Design Philosophy

輕妝黑體是一款同時擁有襯線體的優雅以及無襯線體易讀之特性的字體。猶如佳人輕上胭脂,不顯濃艷反而流露淡雅。

Ethereal Sans is a typeface that gathers the characteristics of both Serif and Sans Serif, which is elegance and readability. Just as a woman put on light makeup, without showing rich and gaudy yet giving the sense of quietly elegant.


設計理目標   /  Design Objective 

作為傳遞訊息的重要媒介,文字在日常生活中隨處可見,但我們卻都不常去注意字體本身的美感甚至忽略。我們希望藉由輕妝黑體讓大家了解到字體的製作過程及重要性,同時讓大家多一種字型選擇。

As an important medium for transmitting messages, words can be found everywhere in our daily life, but we don't often pay attention to the beauty of the font itself or even ignore it. We hope to make people understand the production process and importance of fonts. Meanwhile, there will be another option for the people to choose from.


設計過程   /  Design Process

雖然在設計前做好了準備,但在執行過程中還是遇到許多瓶頸。歐文字體結構較為簡單,加上曾有過製作經驗因此沒有太大問題。最困難的是在中文字體部分,除了要兼顧每個字的結構及風格,還需投入大量時間進行錯視補正。

Although a fair amount of preparation was made before design, there is still have tons of bottlenecks in the process. The structure of English font is relatively simple, plus we have the experience of doing this hence it is not a problem for us. The most difficult part is the Chinese font. Apart from giving considerations to both fonts' structure and style, it take a lot of time to achieve an optimal effect of being the same size.​​​​​​​





可變字體   /  Variable Font

之後,我們使輕妝黑體成為了可變字體,用戶可依個人喜好隨意調整4項細節並任意搭配,可調整的項目為字重、字寬、重心以及線條對比。最重要的是,經過測試後這套字體能夠直接在 Adobe 系統裡使用。

希望在不久的將來輕妝黑體能夠正式發行,並為中文可變字體作出一份貢獻。


Later, we make Ethereal Sans into variable font. Users can adjust the four details according to their preferences. The items that can be adjusted are weight, width, gravity and contrast. The most important thing is this font can be used in Adobe systems after we had tested.​​​​​​​

We hope Ethereal Sans can be officially published in the near future, and make a contribution to the Chinese variable font.
