Nod Young is the art director/co-owner at Beijing-based Khaki Creative and Design and a graduate of the Academy of Arts & Design at Tsinghua. Today, we shall feature three of his works that represent his forays into crossing the chasm between analog and digital design.
(An interesting aside: the four characters on the bottom of the image above (Ai Lou Hu You) is, according to Nod, “a phrase that dates back to the days of
early English learners who were learning to say “I love you.” It’s
funny that “Lao Hu” also happens to be the word for Tiger.”)
Thirdly, representing Chinese text as vector typography, always a difficult task because Chinese characters depend so much on small details (at least, compared to the English alphabet).
