Announcing AXIS Round 100

Announcing AXIS Round 100
Type Project has announced a new product. AXIS Round 100. AXIS Round 100 is a “contemporary round Gothic” that is both approachable and possessed of a sense of being neatly attired. As the inside diameter has not been rounded in the manner of most round Gothics, the sharp expressiveness of the modern sans-serif remains. AXIS Round 50, with its slight curvature and calm expressiveness, and Round 100, whose stroke tips are almost semicircular. With the addition of the Round series to the simple and human-feeling AXIS Font family, more avenues of expression are available than ever before.

【Interview】Surface & Architecture, Inc.

Surface & Architecture aims to bring about new experiences through cutting-edge technology, and from the wonder and inspiration thus aroused, to offer people “a new map of the world”. Having handled everything from concept proposal to design on numerous projects for corporate clients, when it came to the design of its own website, Surface & Architecture decided on AXIS Font Condensed. Furthermore, while Surface & Architecture treats its own website as a portfolio of past projects and has therefore given it a neutral image overall, by modifying weights for a given page or item of content, there are various feminine and masculine aspects that have been brought out as well. We have interviewed Yusuke Okamura, Nozomi Nagayama and Tetsuya Dota.

【Interview】Kyoto Seika University/Japanese and Latin Scripts, coban.lab

In 2016, at Kyoto Seika University’s Department of Visual Design, we introduced Drop&Type. As the font creation software used in the department at the time had many different functions, and therefore made it difficult for students to focus on making their own original fonts, we consulted with Hiroto Ueda of coban.lab regarding the need for a simpler software tool, and we asked him to give a lecture on the occasion of Drop&Type’s introduction. Drop&Type is affordable even to the individual user, so it has quickly become part of students’ workflows. We have interviewed Hiroto Ueda, designer at coban.lab, and Toru Takahashi of the Department of Visual Design in Kyoto Seika University’s Faculty of Design.
