Chinese Motion Type

A Group Work with Xi He and Wenyue Zhan 

The earliest extant examples of Chinese characters were generated from the real shape and appearance of objects, engraved on oracle bones. Chinese calligraphy was considered as the defining feature of Chinese culture and the supreme visual art form in ancient China.
However, most westerners find Chinese typography art complex and difficult to understand. To solve this problem, a motion graphic, Chinese Motion Type, was made to redesign a set of Chinese characters with a modern look.
The motion tells the meaning of each character. The goal of this project is to explore the potential of modern design of Chinese typography.
