[Announcement] A variety of new Japanese fonts, including Shimanami, will be available on Morisawa’s Desktop and Web font service TypeSquare

Dear customers,

Our new offering will include the following fonts:
“Shimanami,” characterized by elements incorporating the nuances of brush strokes; “Kamome Ryuso,” with stroke-endings that evoke the sharp talons of dragons; “SakuraKeisetsu,” that exudes refinement and graciousness; “Shuei NijimiMGo,” with a letterpress-like texture created by a bleeding-ink effect; “Echo,” with a clean look generated by a high center of gravity and a linear font design; “Orb,” with a classy retro feel from its sweet, rounded streamline expression. We have also tweaked parts of “UDDigiKyokasho” and “Zen Old Mincho N D” that have already been released. Please see below.
