29LT ZARID Sans Hanzi
29LT Zarid Sans Hanzi is a member of the Zarid Sans multi-script family, which currently supports Arabic, Cyrillic, Devanagari, Greek, and Latin scripts. The typeface is a Heiti style in Chinese classification, meaning sans-serif for Chinese typefaces. It draws inspiration from Chinese calligraphy and revisits its roots with a modern twist. The Hanzi glyphs retain the design aspect of the other scripts that are present in the Zarid superfamily.
As 29LT Zarid Sans is a versatile typeface that fits any size, the Hanzi part has conventional Zhonggong proportions (similar to the eye in Latin script) to keep high legibility even at text size. Strokes are balanced between softness (in the curves and turning points) and sturdiness (in the monolinear impression) to join the same feeling as the other members of 29LT Zarid Sans. The broad nib pen cut specific to Zarid’s other scripts is adopted within Chinese strokes, although it is impossible to create such a shape in Chinese calligraphy. Nonetheless, this unique feature adds a distinctive touch to the overall design.
We have created a small set of letters for the Hanzi script to showcase the design possibility.
