AXIS Font

AXIS Font

AXIS Font is distinguished for its simple, airy design, and for its availability in seven font weights. Excellent compatibility has been achieved between Japanese typefaces (for hiragana, katakana, kanji and other characters) and Latin typefaces. AXIS Font's well-balanced design is particularly evident in cases of mixed typesetting of Japanese and non-Japanese text. For AXIS Condensed and Compressed, rather than merely narrowing down the basic typeface, we designed an exclusive narrow Japanese font with a focus on character width issues. Moderately slender widths were developed, responding to today's high-density text communication needs with crisp, slim-bodied shapes. With its bilingual content-accommodating design, AXIS Font has been adopted by numerous globally active corporations and now enjoys use in a wide variety of situations.

AXIS Font Std contains 9,354 characters in accordance with Adobe-Japan1-3. AXIS Font ProN will expand this to 15,525 characters, including Latin Italic font, supporting 78 languages.

About the Revised Editions

We began offering revised editions of AXIS Font in October 2017. The main revisions are summarized below.

New font name / file name: AXIS Basic ProN R / AxisBasicProN-R

AXIS Font StdN (Standard Edition)

Characters were added that are in compliance with and appropriate to the character forms specified in JIS X 0213:2004. The previous Standard Edition (Std) offered a Basic with 9,354 characters, and a Condensed and Compressed with 9,356 characters, while the new Standard Edition (StdN) contains 9,498 characters. Moreover, pair kerning data has been added to alphabetic and kana characters and the like, and some glyph designs have been revised as well. In Condensed and Compressed, character width and proportional metrics data have been changed for some of the characters. Font and file names were changed in tandem with these revisions.
