Type This Way – Multi-Script Typography


Increasingly large numbers of people are moving from one country to another. How can designers enable these people to understand one another and effectively communicate? While we may not be able to read a certain language ourselves, we could work closely with natives who can.

“Type This Way” is a typography workbook for multi-script design applications. It features 17 type and graphic designers, ranging from internationally renowned to talented students. The manual covers 10 different writing systems for 15 scripts. The respective interview booklets answer questions about local type markets, design education and the international role of the latin script.
