Xi'an Translations of 2950 Imperator Election Posters

I translated the five election posters into Xi’an, each with a different lettering style. It was a bit of fun for me, and an interesting exploration of both the language of politics and the typography of Xi’an.

Full explanations for each translation are available on the associated tweets I made throughout the first week of the election:

Mira Ngo – secondary official typeface (‘xiinxān’)

Leylani Addison – custom vector lettering

Illyana Sharrad – my fan-made font xiinngiti (soon to be released thanks to CIG’s approval!)

Paul LeSalle – more custom vector lettering, and a little bit of xiinthle’a at the bottom
