Chinese Solar Terms Typography

Here’s a collection of interesting Chinese lettering examples that represent the Chinese solar terms. Each of the designs express an astronomical or natural phenomena from the lunar calendar, and as the designer explains, the typography is used to show the changes that might happen during these times.

The designer, More tong, posted the designs to Behance (in two parts) as part of a project for online magazine voicer.me.

Here’s a few of my favourites:
