Tag Archives: HaruNami


This post is part of a daily series that adds one ornament per day to our blog, up till the new year.


Chiharu Tanaka’s HaruNami (“spring wave”) fuses Japanese ornamentation with the Roman alphabet. The Simple font is a functional Gothic sans; the three other styles – Decorative, Embellished and Ornate – progressively apply the wave motif to the capitals.

The Ornament Series is produced collaboratively by David Sudweeks and Yves Peters.
