About me 「 Qui je suis 」

[en] Hi! My name is Yi Zhang and I’m a graphic designer. I have a special interest in urban mobility and typeface. I created the platform " 画字商店draw me a type " which introduces you to bi-linguism design.I am doing this Kickstarter to help me finalize a unique typefont called TripTrip.

[fr] Bonjour, je m’appelle Yi Zhang, je suis designer graphique. Je m'intéresse plus particulièrement aux questions de déplacement urbain et au dessin de caractères. Découvrez ma plateforme web " 画字商店draw me a type "  qui présente en détail le bi-linguisme design. Voici ma campagne Kickstarter pour m'aider à financer la production d'une typographie unique, TripTrip.

About this project 「 Pourquoi ce projet? 」

Application "Walk across Pau"
Application "Walk across Pau"

 [en] After a long period living in Shanghai, I lived in Pau, France for 3 years. At the beginning, I felt troubled by this quiet city , but I learned to discover it through an app I created called “Promenade à Pau” (Walk across Pau). This app guides you through thematic routes, presented with the TripTrip Typeface. It gives you the choice between different routes, “in a hurry” or “wander around”.

[fr] Après avoir longtemps vécu à Shanghai, je me suis installé à Pau en France, il y a trois ans. D’abord troublée par cette ville paisible, j’ai appris à la découvrir en imaginant l'application " Promenade à Pau" qui permet de naviguer à travers des parcours thématiques accompagné de la typographie TripTrip. L’application donne le choix entre différents parcours et deux mode, pressé ou flâneur.

[en] This project is an opportunity for me to produce a unique typeface. Fascinated by the endless possibilities of typographic experimentation on screens, I conceive TripTrip as an identifying tool: the different choices of paths are translated by typographical variations. I also imagine a colorful ornament system that runs on an abstract code of line loops. On the two basic versions, three types of ornaments are superimposed. The combination of bases and styles allows it to compose hybrid texts able to express with finesse the different components of the city.

[fr] Ce projet est l’occasion pour moi de produire des dessins de caractères uniques. Fascinée par les possibilités d’expérimentation typographique liées aux écrans, je conçois TripTrip comme un outil identificateur : les différents choix de parcours se traduisent par des variations typographiques. J’imagine en parallèle un système d’ornements coloré qui fonctionne sur un code abstrait de boucles de ligne. Sur les deux versions de base, viennent se superposer trois types d’ornements. La combinaison des bases et des styles lui permet ainsi de composer des textes hybrides capables d’exprimer avec finesse les différentes composantes de la ville.

The type specimen
The type specimen

[en] This is a project I started in 2015 during my degree, together with the help of my ESAP teachers. My internships at Longtype and Attoma also inspired me a lot as well as the depth of French design culture. The font is almost finished but I will also develop a version with Chinese characters and continue my typographical exploration in the field of bilingualism. The Kickstarter campaign will help me to extend and develop this project. Thank you all for your support !!!

[fr] C’est un projet que j'a débuté en 2015 pour mon projet de diplôme avec l'aide de mes professeurs de ESAP. Mes stages chez Longtype et Attoma m'ont aussi énormément inspirés ainsi que la richesse de culture du design à la Française. La police de caractères est presque terminée mais je souhaiterai aussi développer une version avec les caractères chinois et continuer mon exploration typographique dans la domaine du bilinguisme. La campagne Kickstarter va m'aider à prolonger et faire évoluer mon projet. Merci à tous pour votre soutien !!!
