The Japanese writing system is formed by different characters such as Kanji, Kana, Alphabet, Numbers, Symbols including Emojis, etc. Japanese typeface that consists of more than 23,000 characters is sophisticatedly designed and formed through a long history of time.

We have designed an expanded font family which has added horizontal and vertical adjustments of boldness of its character, that is called “A Gradation Family”. Furthermore, the formation of a multilingual font designed under the same logic, combining Chinese, Korean and Japanese, is going to be released soon.

Morisawa Inc., a company having contributed to Japanese culture and typeface for more than 80 years, introduces the new chapter of the typeface.
