Call for the Original Typeface

It has been a transformative time for typefaces, exemplified by enriched designs and shaped by an ever-diversifying mediascape.

In recognition of a heightening interest in typefaces, we are pleased to announce Morisawa Type Design Competition 2012, a competition that seeks to discover next generation designers and envision the possibilities of richer character design.

With the restart of the Morisawa Type Design Competition, we newly invite proposals for typefaces that celebrate and pursue originality and beauty, and we have established an award category specifically for product release by Morisawa to ensure immediate access to an excellent entry.

We look forward to many entries.
