Announcing TP Sky Condensed and Compressed

The first family of Japanese-language fonts to be endowed with the three attributes
Type Project has announced a new product, TP Sky Condensed and Compressed. TP Sky is the first family of Japanese-language fonts to be endowed with the three attributes of weight, contrast and character width. The addition of this narrow-face series to the highly displayable TP Sky both elevates the beauty of the font and enhances its spatial efficiency onscreen. This multifaceted family of forty-five fonts shows great promise for the future of display screen type expression.

【Interview】DELTRO INC.

The winner of the 2017 Tokyo Art Directors Club Grand Prix, out of a field of some 8,000 submissions, was the “INDUSTRIAL JP” website and video work made for six small urban factories. The art direction, design and front-end engineering of the website were executed by DELTRO Inc. art director/designer Masanori Sakamoto and technical director/programmer Ken Murayama. “INDUSTRIAL JP” was started with the aim of making a record label out of small factories in Japan’s urban areas. Machine sounds are collected onsite from the manufacturing equipment in these small factories, and musicians use these samples to create original works of music. Then, by incorporating visual recordings of the manufacturing processes, music videos are produced. The font used on the “INDUSTRIAL JP” website is AXIS Font Condensed.We have interviewed Masanori Sakamoto.
