Jun Hun Yap’s Classic Calligraphy

source: Jun Hun Yap

Text The New Forward

Combining both classical calligraphy and the use of illustrated images, designer Jun Hun pays tribute to one of his favourite singers of all time – Sting. Titles of his favourite tracks are stylised and designed to reflect the mood Jun Hun gets from each song.

While an image is worth a thousand words, the coupling of illustration and text is Jun Hun’s way of saying it’s never just one way or the other. In his own words, “I dislike the idea that one thing is better than the other, lettering and illustration can come hand in hand to produce a strong piece that neither one of them can accomplish by itself.”
