“For ‘systems14’, we explored Braun Design in the context of Asia. The project brief called for several approaches, one of which was naturally inspired by huaren (Chinese-speaking) cultures both aesthetically and conceptually. We’ve always admired Chinese typography, and this project provided the opportunity to explore and share its richness.”
