Punctuation is often overlooked, just as Chinese-English bilingual/bi-scriptual typesetting. This newspaper, set in Noto Sans, emphasizes the importance of punctuation and bilingual/bi-scriptual typography by discussing punctuation fundamentals in English and Simplified Chinese.
The publication is set in Noto Sans due to its inclusiveness. From the diverse language options Noto Sans makes available, this newspaper uses Noto Sans and Noto Sans SC. It also includes an article by Monotype: “More than 800 languages in a single typeface: creating Noto for Google”, published in October 2016 at the occasion of the release of Noto Sans on Google Fonts.
Bilingual Design 101: Punctuation is a student project for the Advanced Typography class at Pratt Institute in Spring 2023. The newspaper is curated, edited, and designed by Lihao Zhu and printed at Linco in New York. Special thanks to the course instructor Scott Vander Zee and Graduate Communications Design Department at Pratt Institute.
