Tsukushi Gothic (N specification) D

筑紫ゴシック(N仕様) D

About fonts

Tsukushi Gothic has been developing based on the consistency of design with the Tsukushi Mincho family released in 2003. The range of use is wide, such as books, magazines, catalogs, and leaflets, and the texture of the characters is emphasized so that it can be used when quality is required. Text, captions, small Heading from the large Heading is the Gothic family of all 8 weights was designed to be the best expression to. Tsukushi Gothic style is a combination of modern sharpness and clean hardness, and a classic taste and softness. It is an orthodox but can add freshness to the viewer. While emphasizing "homogeneousness/proportionality", which is the mainstream of modern typeface design, we never lose sight of the fact that "characters were invented and created while writing by hand," and like "Tsukushi Mincho," "writing." The movement of the hand is expressed in the text itself. Being able to see the movement of "writing" is the source of the expressive power of "basically embossing the meaning of sentences" as the mission of the basic typeface. In each of the actions of making, using, and reading typefaces, Tsukushi Gothic created by re-examining the fundamentals of design, such as the mission and role of Gothic that can express the present age.
