Letters that Communicate with a Tranquil Appearance

AXIS Round has been developed to further enrich the world of expressive possibilities already experienced by users of AXIS Font. This font is available in seven weights – UL (Ultra Light), EL (Extra Light), L (Light), R (Regular), M (Medium), B (Bold) and H (Heavy) – each of which has a corresponding weight in AXIS Font Basic. AXIS Round 50 is a rounded font made by smoothing down the angles of the original sans-serif AXIS Font, with the typeface’s sharp contours reworked with subtle curves to bring out a soft, airy quality. While retaining the crisp feeling of a modern sans-serif, this font succeeds in creating a tranquil appearance in both print and screen situations. Without altering AXIS Font’s basic design, we have expanded the AXIS Font series with a round font that allows for a more approachable expressiveness.

Concept

AXIS Round inherits the simple, crisp design that is AXIS Font’s trademark. With its inimitable sense of crispness, AXIS Font has been adopted for architectural use, consumer product creation and numerous other fields. On the other hand, for food and clothing goods, and other situations that call for a softness of expression, it has been necessary to try to adjust AXIS Font in various ways, by taking the time to smooth down its angles, or by applying various software functions so as to generate a quasi-round font. Working with such methods often proves difficult, however, and mechanically-produced transformations do not always yield the envisioned result. AXIS Round has been created with this in mind, in hopes of answering the need for “another AXIS Font”.

Round50

Although AXIS Round 50 is named for its rounding of the half-tips of AXIS Font’s strokes using the diameter of a perfect circle, in actuality the roundness is a percentage set by visual adjustment for each weight. For example, Heavy and Bold are adjusted to 50%, Medium and Regular to 55%, and Light, Extra Light and Ultra Light to 60%.

Weights

When AXIS Round 50’s Ultra Light and Extra Light are used for large-character titles and advertising headlines, the effect of the softly rounded corners is clear. Using Light and Regular in 20 point or higher imparts a calm atmosphere. Medium and higher weights enable clear expressions of an even calmer appearance, and with Bold and Heavy in particular, the distinctively tranquil tones of AXIS Round 50 come to the fore.
