“Wang Zhi-Hong crafts a brand new design style that blends classicism and modernism by pursuing every possibility of typography. Whether we look at the way in which Wang references history and culture or his focus on technical details, he has proved particularly adept at both, as evidenced by his array of impressive book covers. Wang has used Asian perception to drive his deconstruction of modern typography, with his inspiration and ideas containing their own power to perhaps facilitate new movement and exchange in the world of Chinese characters.”  MUROGA KIYONORI, Former editor-in-chief of IDEA magazine, JP

Wang Zhi-Hong, a graphic designer and a member of AGI. He is committed to incorporating typography into his design projects across the cultural and commercial sectors.
