Typebank Font !NEW!

Typos first gained popularity in the 1960s and 70s. The numbers in the font names designate the weights of the horizontal and vertical lines in each font; for example, Kanji Typos 412 means that 4 is the horizontal line thickness and 12 is the vertical line thickness.

When designing a TBUD typeface, designers analyze the type in situations where the letters are easily misidentified, and evaluate the typeface based on its performance in these readability and legibility tests. As a result of this process, the TBUD font series has a high level of readability and legibility. This makes TBUD typefaces ideal for meeting accessibility goals and situations where readability is crucial, such as public signage.

Over the nine decades since our predecessors invented the first Japanese language phototypesetting machine in 1924, Morisawa has committed itself to the creation and distribution of Japanese language type," said Akihiko Morisawa, President and CEO, Morisawa Inc. "To date, Morisawa has only offered its products and services in the Japanese market. However, over the years we have continued to receive a growing number of requests from foreign companies interested in using our Japanese fonts. I am keenly aware that many companies active in the global market desire to display the Japanese language as beautifully as possible in a variety of formats - in print, on manufactured goods and Web sites, and in mobile applications. At the same time, we recognize that the work environment for creatives now extends beyond the PC to include mobile devices.

(Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; Chairman and CEO: Nobuaki Nakamura), a subsidiary of Morisawa, to Typekit on Adobe Creative Cloud.

The TBUD Mincho series is a typeface that provides legibility and readability while maintaining a magnificent Mincho design. In general, horizontal lines of fonts in the Mincho style are designed to be thin that it may be difficult to read for people with poor vision or from a distance. The thickness of the horizontal lines of the TBUD Mincho is designed to have the same width in both vertical and horizontal thickness so that characters are clearly legible and suitable for viewing from a distance.

This piece focuses on the Japanese font foundry scene. It is a scene in constant change, a result of bankruptcies by individual companies, mergers, start-ups and constantly shifting licensing models. In what follows, I intend to provide an overview of the most important foundries today.

As announced recently at Adobe MAX, Japanese font vendor Morisawa and Adobe have entered into a partnership that makes Morisawa Japanese fonts available through Adobe Typekit. For designers and creative professionals who work in international markets, this is huge.

Morisawa is the leading provider of digital fonts in the Japanese market. Not only that, but they have been in business for over 90 years, and are the only Japanese foundry to have successfully made the transition from traditional type to digital type. Morisawa digital fonts are considered the highest quality fonts available, in a market that cares a great deal about quality.

However, up until now, Morisawa fonts were only available in Japan. This made it very difficult for designers working on multinational accounts to acquire the fonts, which are coveted for their quality as well as the variety of available faces. The lucky few with offices in Japan could make purchases directly, but the rest had no access and were unable to include Morisawa fonts in their international campaigns.

Fortunately, Morisawa realized the demand for their fonts went far beyond the borders of Japan, and earlier this year, they opened a US subsidiary, Morisawa USA. With this expansion, the agreement with Adobe to include the fonts with Typekit could be inked. Both Morisawa fonts, and those of their subsidiary, TypeBank, are now available.

Kochi (東風フォント) was a font development project to build free replacements of proprietary fonts such as MS Gothic or MS Mincho, developed by Yasuyuki Furukawa (古川 泰之). The project consisted of the Kochi Gothic and Kochi Mincho fonts. It was released in the public domain.

The Kochi Mincho font began as an outline version of a raster font known as Watanabe (渡邊). This version was deprecated in 2003 after it was discovered by Hiroki Kanou, one of the developers, that Watanabe was largely copied from a commercial font, TypeBank Mincho-M;[1] while it was not clear that any law was being broken,[2] the developers were not interested in working with plagiarised material.

While Hitachi, who claimed to own the TypeBank font, had announced that they were willing to permit its restricted use in Linux systems,[3] the direction preferred was to discontinue the old Kochi fonts and replace them with new versions that did not contain any of the plagiarised characters. The new font family was called Kochi-substitute: it retained the old Kochi Gothic and Kochi Mincho font names, but the file names were changed to kochi-gothic-subst.ttf and kochi-mincho-subst.ttf, respectively.

The outlines of kana and Latin glyphs in Kochi Gothic come from the old Kochi font project for kana and Latin-based characters. Greek and Cyrillic glyphs were built specifically for Kochi-Substitute by Uchida (内田).

Both fonts also support following code pages: 1252 (Latin 1), 1250 (Latin 2), 1251 (Cyrillic), 1254 (Turkish), 1257 (Windows Baltic), 932 (JIS/Japan), Reserved for OEM, 865 (MS-DOS Nordic), 863 (MS-DOS Canadian French), 861 (MS-DOS Icelandic), 857 (MS-DOS IBM Turkish), 852 (Latin 2), 775 (MS-DOS Baltic), 850 (WE/Latin 1), 437 (US).
