Calligraphy, or more popularly known as the typography is indeed beautiful, and this beauty has not limited, no geographical borders. It has transgressed through the world and entered into every possible quarter. The days have progressed, but people still find the use of Latin alphabets in their daily work. However, the international projects have progressed and they do not find it sufficient enough to meet their daily needs. Hence, it requires extensive knowledge about the less familiar systems of calligraphy, and the in-depth design between the aesthetics and structure of each of these letters plays a major role. So when the entire world is depending on the engaging Web designs, these international writing systems can actually help enhance the attractive nature of businesses.
Kimberly Wang Dey found this game of letters and characters quite interesting right from the beginning. Even though she found her career safe in the businesses that her father ran, the artistic self never let her restrict into these daily meetings and conferences. She started studying more and more on the differing calligraphic styles and found out that all the different languages are based on a different writing system completely. Often people have kept themselves apart from this as they found it inherently connected with the academic world. But that is not how this works, and hence people need to be more aware of it.
The Oriental Writing Systems
As Kimberly Wang Dey has got some Oriental connections, she has always found interest in the characters of the eastern world. Obviously, the Chinese people have been found to use the Chinese characters, but even the Japanese language forms have even found the use of these Chinese characters as well. Not just the Japanese language, even the Koreans have found the use of such characters in their own language.
The Chinese characters are quintessential symbols, and they do not comprise of any alphabet that is otherwise popular in the English language. So, these characters will obviously have its own meaning and pronunciation for sure. As most of the commonly used characters in this Chinese language has got more than thirty different strokes, studies have proved that some of these have been recommended only to add speed, accuracy and hold some legitimacy in composition.
There are some of the traditions which are slowly getting extinct just because they are not that popular. One such method is four treasures of the study- which has got the expression referring to the brush, ink, paper and other ink stones which are being used in the Chinese as well as Oriental calligraphic traditions. There’s a trend of adding the seals at the end of any calligraphic work. The very idea of signing the art work is being signified by the seals that are being used in these Chinese calligraphic works.
Calligraphy is a discipline on its own, and the diverse knowledge needs enough research work. The growth of interest is what lacks and Kimberly Dey strives to let it grow within the mass.
