004 Beiwei Kaishu

Designed by: Adonian Chan (Trilingua)

Design Trust Affiliation: Design Trust Seed Grantee and Design Trust Futures Studio 2019 Mentee

Description: Graphic designer Adonian Chan created cookies cutters in the style of the uniquely-Hong Kong Beiwei Kaishu, a font that defined the city’s visual culture for decades.

Pictured on the left is the Chinese character 惡 (“evil”). The concept behind is to create something more positive, ‘digestible’ and light-hearted out of something that is conceived as unfavourable.
