Cities, Inhaling, Exhaling, and Us
Editorial Design, Graphic Design
2021


Cities, Inhaling, Exhaling, and Us is a guide book that showcases and promotes solutions for urban air pollution to help individuals breathe easier.
        It visually translates scientific facts on the impact of air pollutants, notes the impact of pollutants on health and climate, lists air quality data from 5 most-searched cities and sets out actions for individuals to minimise their polluting behaviours.
        Cities, Inhaling, Exhaling, and Us was printed using a Risograph machine, which means the ink may smudge the book while you are reading it. It could also leave visible blue traces on your fingers. Your hands could be stained, just like the cities whose environments have been damaged by air pollution.

SIO2 Typeface (Specimen)
Editorial Design, Typography

SIO2 is a three-dimensional typeface inspired by the manufacturing process in glass factories. It comes with 26 uppercase letters and 10 numerical figures. This avant-garde typeface brings physical glass properties into a digital space, which gives viewers a surreal and futuristic vision.
       SIO2 is an antidote to the repetitive image of glass production—a discovery of beauty within boredom and a reflection of the nobility of routine.

The typeface is available upon request (Both 2D & 3D modes). Please drop a line to iamyue.hu@gmail.com.
