Designing type for da大 in print – reuse eventually [unit s1], we wanted to experiment with how efficiently we could design characters but at the same time achieve an interesting result aesthetically. We ultimately arrived at a Simplified Chinese typeface which is based on a strict system of straight and horizontal lines + 45° angles. Following this system resulted in glyphs which are simplified visually but which achieve a sort of cyber-punk, futurist aesthetic. Additionally, the simple nature of the system and resulting structure of each glyph allows for quick expansion of the character set as production time has been brought down to a minimum.
在为da大 in print-终极复迭[特集 s1] 设计字体时，我们希望找寻到一种在字体设计上既保证高效又具有趣味美学特质的平衡。我们最终建立了一套严格的垂直+水平线网格系统，在此基础之上设计出一系列带有45° 角度的中文简体字体。由此网格系统所产生的字体，字形不仅在视觉上被高度简化，同时达到了一种数字朋克／未来化的美感。与此同时，因为字体本身带有的系统性特质和每个笔画结构的简化性能，使每个文字扩展变得非常容易，生产时间降到最低。
