Bi-Scriptual : Typography and Graphic Design with Multiple Script Systems Hardback
As a result of globalization and in- creased interaction across countries and cultures, multilingualism is becom- ing increasingly important all around the world.
Script, as the most impor- tant conveyor of confirmation, plays a major role in this development.
Design- ers are more and more faced with the challenge of creating designs that not only combine various languages but two or even more writing systems. At first, Bi-Scriptual discusses on a theoretical level questions such as the sociocultural relations between various writing systems and the increasing importance of sociocultural communi- cation.
Following a general section on the practical application of bilingual design, experts of the concerned lan- guages compare eight writing systems with the Latin script.
This part also contains topical interviews and practi- cal examples of more than 100 design- ers that show the various possibilites of creating designs incorporating different writing systems side by side.
