Chinese calligraphy has a long history and is both broad and profound. In the concept of traditional Chinese literatus, the ink ingot and the ink stone are indispensable in Four Treasures of Study of China. However, under the impact of modern civilization, fast tempo of life has made the art of calligraphy undergo downturn. In China, it is very rare that people can be exposed to traditional calligraphy, especially for the young people. To make calligraphy, this ancient and attractive art, better adapt to the modern social trend is a mission that a designer should undertake.
