There are a lot of different cultures around the world. It is hard for people with various cultural backgrounds to understand each other. Language is the most direct expression of cultural barriers. With the different structures of languages, communication becomes unsmooth. People can get to know each other better if we narrow down the gaps. The research here discusses the possibility of building a connection between language characters through the graphic. This work will use Chinese and English as an experimental. Images and pictures are the most visual information for people to read. And languages are the most direct information for people to communicate. So I did some research between letters and characters in those two languages. Try to incorporate the style of Chinese fonts into the English letters, and I used calligraphy to write English letters. I used that typeface to make some words.
