Huawei font inspired by calligraphy

The design of the font in Huawei’s HarmonyOS system was inspired by Chinese calligraphy dating back 3,000 years, a Huawei designer said in Shanghai yesterday.

HarmonyOS , which debuted this month, supports over 100 languages, including localized font designs in Chinese, English, Latin and Arabic.

Computers and devices can use those fonts for free after installation, said Huawei designer Dafu.

For Chinese languages, Huawei cooperated with culture and calligraphy artists to design the font, which is inspired by oracle bones from the Shang Dynasty (1600 BC-1046 BC).

They are filled with “beauty and great taste,” Dafu said at Huawei’s flagship store on Nanjing Road E.

The HarmonyOS design represents the “crossroad of art and technology,” he added.

More than 10 million users had upgraded to the HarmonyOS system following its official debut on June 2.
