Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

The long, incredibly tortuous, and fascinating process of creating a Chinese font

"The sheer scale of the work involved has made it difficult for the Chinese language to enjoy the typographic diversity of Western ones, where there are varieties for every mood, style, and feel. But the world’s hundreds of millions of Chinese-speaking internet users are getting sick of seeing the same fonts over and over." Something most people never think about, I'm sure. And it's fascinating to me that written Chinese had to wait for high resolution displays to come along before they could be used in the same way western languages have been since computers were invented.
