Description

“Orthodox and gentle” - MaruminFuji’s kana characters are designed to feel established and relaxed with relatively large counter-spaces and a larger than average character size, closer to that of kanji characters, so the text aligns beautifully. The letter forms provide a soft, calm feeling. This typeface can be used for a wide variety of purposes.

The same Ideographic (kanji) characters are shared by all the Marumin variations. The design of kanji characters of Marumin is based on the Mincho type style in Japan, but it has stroke elements with rounded features. The terminals of its horizontal and vertical strokes, dots, tome and harai stroke shapes are all rounded. Marumin establishes a new category of “Rounded Minchotai” with seven kana variations in total.

One characteristic of the Japanese language is that it has kana syllabic characters. Kana characters were invented in Japan to represent sounds in Japanese and translate texts imported from China into Japanese. Kana characters are needed to create Japanese words and expressions from kanji/Chinese ideographic characters. While there may be ambiguities, these words and expressions exhibit the warmth and gentleness of the lives of people living in the small and densely populated land of Japan.

Kinuta Font Factory’s believes that kana characters are the origin of written words in Japanese, and we think that improving kana characters will make Japanese text more attractive. On average, 60% of Japanese text consists of kana characters – changing the shape of these characters changes the visual appearance of the text. The possibilities for typographic expression using simple, dynamic and curvilinear kana characters are vast, and the richness of Japanese text depends on kana characters. This is the reason why Kinuta Font Factory offers many variations of kana typefaces.
