    2013 WUS ST5 Project - Case Back Text Vote

    Winner is #2 and we will adjust the English font according to Handwindauto's suggestion.

    UPDATE:


    Since most members are happy with the suggestions posted below, this thread will be changed into a vote for favourite case back text. Please respond to this post with the text you would like to see on our ST5 case back. For example, my choice would be text number two, so I would reply with #2.

    Edit:
    Voting will close on 16th August, 10am Hong Kong time.

    We need to decide on the case back text for our ST5 project and here are some ideas that were suggested in the design thread.

    I'll vote for number 1


    (Number 1 or 2, I slightly prefer number 1 but really I'd be fine with either )

    I prefer #2, but a style similar to the Helvetica (in English as I wouldn't know the difference in Chinese text fonts) could give it a nice retro sort-of feel that would be nice if done correctly.

    I prefer #3, but at the end of the day any one of them would be fine with me.

    #2 is the best of the bunch, because the bold chinese looks better. I think it would work better, however, with a monospaced serif font for the English. That way, all English characters would be the same width, as is the case for the Chinese characters. Just need to size them so they are the same height.
