BY LAIZINALI LAIZINALI
@ VOL 35 ON DEC 09, 2017

“Lai zi na li” was created by two 1990s girls passionate for fonts with the goal of promoting Taiwan traditional Chinese character culture. In the hopes of driving traditional Chinese from Taiwan to the world and displaying its beauty. Lai zi na li is the transliteration of “where are you from” in Chinese. The zi in the middle is a pun on the word “font”, and conveys the concept of our team- to promote traditional Chinese characters!
