Source Han Sans Simplified Chinese

Source Han Serif is the serif-style typeface family companion to Source Han Sans. The Chinese glyphs, both simplified and traditional, were designed by partner type foundry Changzhou SinoType. The Simplified Chinese fonts support the GB 18030 standard, along with China’s list of 8,105 hanzi (Tōngyòng Guīfàn Hànzìbiǎo, which includes 199 hanzi that are outside the scope of the GB 18030 standard). The Traditional Chinese fonts support the Big 5 standard, and glyph shapes adhere to the Taiwan Ministry of Education standard. Learn more about how these fonts were created.

Type Designers

Adobe Originals

The Adobe Originals program started in 1989 as an in-house type foundry at Adobe, brought together to create original typefaces of exemplary design quality, technical fidelity, and aesthetic longevity.

Today the Type team’s mission is to conduct original research and development for type at Adobe, making sophisticated and even experimental typefaces that explore the possibilities of design and technology. Typefaces released as Adobe Originals — fully-featured families and smaller “Concept” projects alike — are the result of years of work and study, regarded as industry standards for the ambition and quality of their development.
