In the wake of the pandemic the rise in hate crimes towards Asians has sky rocketed. There is an increased fear and anger in our Asian communities across the world. We fear for ourselves and our elders. We're angry that ignorant hate and violence is affecting innocent people.
But this is not a new problem. The Asian communities have long been victims of mockery and harmful stereotypes. We are seen as a monolithic culture when there are in fact hundreds of cultures on the continent. We are diverse and rich and I created this typeface to reflect that diversity. Each letter has its unique design. Individually they are different but together they create a something even greater.
