Valticao Typeface

A fusion typeface created in representation of my personal bicultural identity.

The typeface is a personal exploration into the bicultural identities of a eastern born Chinese. Through the fusion of Chinese characters and Helvetica light,
a unique structural typeface is born

The Chinese character ‘高’ pronounced ‘Gao’ meaning tall is my surname, which represents my heritage. While Helvetica is the English typeface used due to its popularity.
