Many of these designs, which have just been integrated into the font portfolio, are available outside Japan for the first time and originated from the prestigious Japanese font suppliers, Iwata, JiyuKobo, Motoya, Ricoh and Type Project.
These fonts, which have recently been included in the Web shop are available as desktop fonts and web fonts, as well as for mobile applications, electronic publishing and web-based services, and also for OEM and consumer device developers.
The high quality, multi-lingual font collection covers a broad range of styles, including classic Mincho and Gothic designs in various stroke thicknesses and brush and deco styles. The fonts have been developed both for maximum readability and for use on screens, as well as for printed materials. And several of the fonts are also laid out as “Universal Design” (DU) and offer simplified forms and further details to give the clearest possible representation on electronic screen displays.
