Miai is a conceptual typeface inspired by the Japanese Kaisho style. This typeface project aims at finding out how Japanese calligraphy tools and techniques can be used to shape Latin letterforms while carefully considering the limits that legibility and readability pose on type design. Miai has four Latin font styles and two Japanese styles with Hiragana and Katakana. Each of the Miai family’s Latins offers an interpretation of aspects of the Japanese script.
