Differences between the traditions of Chinese type design and latin letter-forms have commonly posed as a challenge for bilingual design work. Some of the main issues are found in their differences of height and width while also contrasting in character weight/density. These issues initiated the research and creation of Collator.

Collator is a typeface designed to achieve greater harmony between Chinese characters and Latin letterforms when set together. Drawing inspiration from the two traditions of type design, Collator aims to be a contemporary, balanced expression of both Western and Asian cultures.
