Microsoft Corporation – Meiryo font（Type design）
In all ages and cultures, Gutenberg is called the father of modern printing technology and his discovery “Movable Type Technology” spread an information revolution rapidly throughout the world. Since then in the Western world, “creating letters” has been seen as the source of design for the fountain of knowledge that is books. Even now extremely high quality printing books are printed with high quality type-face that has been traditionally polished. “Creating type-face” became “creating phototypesetting” in the latter half of the 20th Century, and now it has further become gcreating digital letters”. “Paper” is also becoming “screen” and brilliant color 3D graphics are meaning that printing is moving away from typesetting but without letters one could not use a mobile phone. Technology is always on the move and now Western and Asian characters are being mixed into horizontal typesetting in increasing regularity from books to business documents. I would like to work toward creating a book and useful font to understand the increasingly confused and different language and culture.
