怎么办:中文字体设计和跨文化沟通 What Can We Do: Cross-cultural Visual Communication & Chinese Typography

£14 ($17 / €16)

What Can We Do: Cross-cultural Visual Communication & Chinese Typography is a collection of design commentaries published in 2013 by Pan Jianfeng. Born in an artistic family and studying fine calligraphy from childhood, Pan has utlised the power of typography to create unique communication designs for major brands and institutions. Eight years later, Pan has now turned to purer artistic writing in his “exile” in the old town of Porvoo, Finland. However, his understanding and exploration of the morph and meaning of words, especially Chinese characters, is still evolving.

“Today, young designers, struggling back and forth between technology and soul, torn between ideal and reeality, have few chances to quesion and reflect. This has started to theatren society’s confidence in desingers and the public awareness of design.” “To keep the freedom of thought and pureness of mind is far more important than to be an outstanding designer!” These words collected from Pan’s short pieces written for the China Art Weekly still resonate with him today. The book, interspersed by personal career stories and various design works, can be a helpful reference for young designers and cross-cultural creatives to start a conversation.
