Need help with Chu nom characters

Postby BongSau » 2015-04-24, 2:48

Hello everyone

I'm glad there are forums and communities like this, as i need help with designing a logo that has to do with vietnamese Chu Nom characters and im not sure if the characters i used actually have any coherent meaning when they are combined like this. The order could be totally wrong, or maybe even the combination of these 2 words.

The logo i posted here is not the final one, im gonna carve it and use it as an ink stamp for business cards.
The 1st character means "to see/to feel" and the 2nd one means "the way".
The meaning i want to convey is "the way to see/ to feel"
Maybe i should have them in a different order, maybe not, but i like the way they are right now.

I'm fully aware this is a very specific and difficult matter for most people but i need all the help i can get


My source for the characters is chunom.org

Any help would be appreciated.

Have a great day y'all

The best thing to do is to find the existing word of what you're trying to say in Vietnamese, then look up the Chu Nom with Quoc Ngu at http://nomfoundation.org/nom-tools/Nom-Lookup-Tool. At the end of the day, Chu Nom is just a script to write Vietnamese, not a language on its own.

Can't help you with the characters (or even the content), but based on what you say they're supposed to mean, I can tell that's a Chinese word order. Switch them around for Vietnamese, or at least something resembling it.

So, regarding the research on the logo I have concluded that these characters are apropriate for the meaning i want to express which is "the method/way/path" and "to see/observe/perceive"

Can't be 100% sure if this is he best way to go, but i have done my best. Now the problem is the order in which they will appear.
Any opinions?

As suggested earlier, it's best to find existing words with meaning that matches what you are looking for, instead of trying to combine existing characters to form your own "word".
