Chinese Letterforms

You decide what they are trying to say – but your designs must work in terms of a human film audience understanding the translation reveal at the end of the film. You must base your designs on having explored a variety of non-Latin letterforms, goldsmiths and printers marks and other sign and symbol systems.

I have decided to have a quick look into Chinese letterforms as they use symbols to represent full words, so the 5 letterforms I create for this brief could create a phrase or series of words that they are trying to communicate.

The image below shows some examples of this. There is a traditional and implied version of each letter, and also versions that have been hand written and versions that are digital created using straight lines and geometric curves.
