The Chinese Type Archive (BETA) compiles and catalogs resources related to Chinese typography to make them open and accessible to the widest possible audience of designers. Its aim is to support designers who use Chinese typography by:

  1. Developing descriptors for concepts, typefaces, and related entities
  2. Archiving related and relevant visual examples
  3. Providing points of entry through translation and highlighting relationships that may be equivalent and not equivalent to other typographic systems

As an archive, we utilize a broad collections approach with the aim of capturing design history and fostering the dialogue, use, and evolution of Chinese typography in a globalized context. The archive focuses on Chinese typography, proper, and incorporates relevant material adjacent to it. Future efforts include tools and methods for typographic analysis and data publishing.

The Chinese Type Archive is an ongoing, collaborative effort run by volunteers. Because of this, the Archive is incomplete and contains omissions and errors. We welcome collaborators, submissions, and corrections.

This project is funded in part by the American Institute of Graphic Arts Design Educators Community grant and the Parsons School of Design General Research Fund. Material support comes from Synoptic Office.
