Chinese Fonts

Chinese is written in two different varieties of characters: Traditional and Simplified. The characters in Traditional Chinese are often more intricate composed of many strokes; while the characters in Simplified Chinese uses forms which have been reduced to fewer strokes. Beyond the graphical contrasts of the two characters, they are used in different areas and by different Chinese speakers. Simplified Chinese characters are officially used in Mainland China, Singapore and Malaysia, and used in some overseas Chinese communities. Traditional Chinese characters are officially used in Taiwan, HongKong and Macau, and used by many Overseas Chinese communities. Most common font styles are Song, Fang Song, Kai, Hei, Li and Wei. Hei is a popular font that pairs well with Helvetica.
