About AXIS Font™ Latin font family
It is distinguished for its simple, airy design, and for its availability in seven font weights: Ultra Light, Extra Light, Light, Regular, Medium, Bold and Heavy. As it was developed with the vision that an entire magazine could be set in a single typeface family, AXIS Font allows for the creation of a rich variety of magazine designs while maintaining a consistent sensibility. With our superfine Ultra Light font, completely new, fresh heading styles never before available with Japanese fonts are now possible.
Narrow Japanese fonts, the AXIS Condensed and Compressed are breaking new ground in the history of Japanese typefaces. These are the first example ever of a narrow font being specially designed for a Japanese typeface. Instead of merely compressing the characters, we have succeeded in creating typefaces of superior density and text quality by designing the kanji ideograms, kana and alphabetic characters each with appropriate character widths. To maximize economic efficiency of information space without sacrificing text readability or beauty: this is the central design aim of the AXIS Font Compact Series.
AXIS Font receives Good Design Communication Design Award in 2003 and AXIS Condensed and Compressed receive Good Design Communication Digital Media Award in 2008.
