Chinese Provincial Capital Typeface

The monograms of Chinese province abbreviations contain the full names of their provincial capitals. Which is the first impression, the abbreviations or the full names, depends on the reader's intuitive and past reading experience. What the designer is after is that the viewers, with or without font design knowledge, can recognize one or more words. Or rather, this might be their unintended, preset reading space. The monogram, of a special pictograph, provides multiple recognitions, being familiar and strange at once, reasonable but uncommon. This is an attempt at the design of Chinese monographs, an exploration of additional possibilities of Chinese character design based on certain recognizability.
