Create typography to write the name of a place in a way that makes people want to visit that destination.
透過字形設計的創意,打造讓人想一探究竟的地名

From now until the end of the year, the winter holiday season has arrived.
When people go to a foreign country, they worry about being able to communicate; but in countries that use kanji, those who understand kanji can glean meanings through writing.
Kanji (Chinese: hànzì, Japanese: kanji) is used in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese. It is a writing system used mostly and broadly in East Asia.
The blunt stops and swooping tails of kanji characters are beautiful, both the left and right sides of kanji characters have individual meanings, and there are a plethora of different types and complex forms. It is unique among all writing systems.

For this project, we are seeking typography combined with illustrations and designs for the theme of “kanji.”
The theme is “Place Names.” Country, city, and region names ordinarily seen on maps are often written in dull fonts. Please try to create more interesting typography for a place name written in kanji — one that expresses its unique characteristics and invites viewers to visit.
Give a standout appearance to a name that people ordinarily see on their way to school or work as they thoughtlessly glance over station signboards or maps.

The selected works will exhibit at FabCafe
Enjoy playing with a different kind of alphabet by using unique typography for kanji, alongside Asian creators!

歲末年終,有沒有運用連假出遊的計劃呢?
對使用漢字(中文字)的國家如台灣、日本來說,旅遊至其他同樣使用漢字的異國時。是否也有即使語言不通,但因為見到熟悉的文字出現,而感到一絲安心、並從能夠理解的字義中猜測、想像其中涵義的經驗呢?
漢字(中文:hànzì , 日本語:kanji) ,被使用於中文、日文、韓文、越南文中。是東亞各地所共有的文字。漢字不僅在不同筆畫中擁有書寫的美感;單一文字的組成上,字頭與字邊也擁有各自乘載的意義。既複雜又迷人,其他文字幾乎無法與之相比。

本次專案,便是以「漢字」為核心、「地名」為主題,募集結合平面/插畫的字體設計作品。
平常在地圖上瀏覽時,使用同樣字體的國名、縣市名稱、地區名稱,雖方便了閱讀,但也讓人感受不出這些名字所代表的地方特色與溫度。
因此,我們想邀請你來發揮創意與設計力!將地方的風土特色融入地名文字的設計中,運用巧思,讓見到這個作品的人產生對該地的嚮往。也許是平常通勤路上再平凡不過的車站站名、地圖上的街道名稱,透過你的創意詮釋,讓我們感受這個地方的魅力!

這次的徵件專案將以台日為中心,向亞洲擴散。獲選作品也將於FabCafe展出。期待著亞洲的設計師們一起來動手挑戰設計的樂趣!
