About fonts

Shueitai is a typeface that has been in development for over 100 years since the days of Shueisha, the predecessor of Dai Nippon Printing. Among the Hidehide type with abundant families, "Shuei Mincho" has the most vitality. For many years, I have continued to convey the texts of books and magazines. This one-stroke typeface has an eloquent look and gives the reader a solid sense of trust.

In the recent renewal, while following the features of the past, the detailed design returned to the original characters of the print type era and explored the original typeface. The horizontal drawing Weight has been developed to be thicker than other Mincho styles, and there are few flicker of fine lines, and it keeps the blackness that is easy on the eyes.

Weight has three types of L, M and B, and by combining as Text group and Heading, it conveys the unity and calm impression of the Hideei body expression. .
