Left Font, as a Chinese reverse contrast typeface which is quite rare in the commercial market, comes from the spirit of rebellion. The characters’ horizontal strokes are thickened while vertical strokes are narrower. Furthermore, the unusual tilting angle of the horizontal stokes shows the features of the handwriting of a left-handed. Left Font has a wide and flat outlook with both strong contrast of thickness and soft curves. It brings out an impressing and artistic style, yet not so rigid. Besides Chinese characters, Latin letters and numbers with the same style are also available in Left Font, so that it can be widely used in a variety of circumstances including elections, social movements and so on.
