KanjiCooker Workshop


Staunton 7/F S710-711 Pop up

Joe Chang

KanjiCooker is inspired by TypeCooker™ which is a lettering assignment in Type and Media, developed by Erik van Blokland. By deconstructing the features of letterform into visual elements, TypeCooker™ generates random parameters to create a “recipe” for cooking the letters. KanjiCooker is derived from TypeCooker™ but with parameters specially modified for Kanji. Based on the “recipe”, you can try to match as many parameters as you can to create lettering by hands. Through acquiring the rudiments of Kanji, KanjiCooker can help to understand Chinese typeface design and generate ideas quickly.
