JI SANS (IN PROGRESS)
JI is a Latin sans serif typeface with Asian influences. Its skeleton is formed from traditional roman glyphs but its features are inspired by Adobe Fangsong, a digital Chinese font family derived from the thin strokes of Song dynasty calligraphy. JI was born from the desire to create a contemporary Brutalist typeface with a distinct Asian American voice, with subtlety that neither stereotypes nor exoticizes its Eastern inspirations. Its name, meaning “trace” in Mandarin, refers both to vestigial origins and to the act of reproduction.
