Designing with Languages



This poster was to announce one of our branches that deals primarily with the Asian Community. The calligraphy was created by an eldery gentleman. The librarian in charge of the posters/PR asked if he could write out the characters for "Library".
With that he pulled out some paper, an old bottle of ink and his brush. And voila! It was painted.
Doing the text was tricky. It was to be in Cantonese, but I don't understand it, plus I had to find the right font out of all the Chinese fonts that would work. A very patient library aide worked with me.
