Congratulations to our academic staff, Mr Brian Kwok, writer of "CITY OF SCRIPTS 2 - HONG KONG TYPE DESIGNERS" on receiving the Merit Award at the 2024 ADC Awards - Publication Design.


The book features a research  on type design in Hong Kong. The author interviewed eight local designers with various kinds of type design, from logotype, text, title and sign design of Hong Kong Mass Transit Railway. It provides valuable information to the study of Chinese type design.


The book cover features minimalistic geometric colour blocks, creating a striking visual representation of "" (characters) and "Type." Using the hot stamping technique impresses these elements onto a grid that spans across the book and establishes a seamless connection between the cover, the book's title, and the process of typeface design, showcasing the beauty and diverse range of Chinese characters.
