About Product

Overview

TP Sky Classic is the first Japanese font to implement the attribute of inside space between strokes in a family configuration. Kanji with tightened inside space between strokes, with peaks in the *block style of the first period of the Tang dynasty are positioned as the standard for Classic.

The well-balanced proportion carried out for kanji, kana, and Latin tightens the screen. At the same time, it creates a relaxed atmosphere. TP Sky Classic, in which the essence of the proper block style is incorporated in sans-serif typeface - the newest typeface format - is a font family that maintains a classical appearance while remaining simple. Furthermore, the font file size is restrained to the utmost limits by the displayability common to the TP Sky family, with concise and smooth outlines drawn thoroughly.

*Block style of the first period of the Tang dynasty
The first period of the history of literature, of the four periods of the Tang dynasty of China. The period is 100 years, from the year 618 of the first period of Tang dynasty to 712 (the year before the enthronement of Xuanzong).

TP Sky is a font family designed with the attribute of “modulation” incorporated into a sans-serif typeface so as to improve its effectiveness on digital device screens. It is available of forty-five fonts in five weights, three contrasts, and three character widths.

An extremely thick weight is achieved in TP Sky Modern Blk by widening the inside space between strokes. This manages both thickness and visibility by strengthening the contrast between straight lines and curved lines, and making strokes longer to allow a generous structure.

By using each TP Sky font properly, the relationship between headings and texts or titles and captions can be expressed more effectively, enabling a high level of unity on the screen.

Concept

Based on the concept of “a vast expanse of clear skies above us” that covers the entire family, TP Sky Classic aims at the expansion of applications in formal scenes, and incorporates a well-balanced block style proportion. The font combines a compact and clear sans-serif typeface and proper classical block style.

Inside space between strokes
Using the classical typeface as a model, the inside space between strokes of the modest structure of TP Sky is tightened.

It also manages both a classical and tightened structure of inside space between strokes and a simple outline drawing. In addition to the conventional TP Sky family, it can be used depending on the scene by changing the attributes of the inside space between strokes.

Features
