Announcing SST JP



SST is a corporate font that was developed jointly by Sony Corporation and Monotype. Type Project, on receiving a commission from Monotype, developed the Japanese typeface SST JP. Sony’s “product qualities” are extended to and recreated in the kana character design, while AXIS Font is employed for the kanji character parts. Type Project also handled the recomposition engineering of Monotype-produced Latin typefaces for use with Japanese typefaces.
