We start Detail Type Foundry with the first new typeface “Astro”.

Today, November 1, 2018, the design studio Kamimura & Co. established the type design department Detail Type Foundry (Detail). In addition to selling font licenses on this website, we also produce custom typefaces for companies and brands. Please see this article on the history of establishment etc.

Additionally, Detail provides the first new typeface “Astro” from today. This typeface inspired by contemporary science and technology is designed by Makoto Kamimura, a Japanese art director/type designer. Astro is developed as a large-sized typeface family consisting of 20 weights 40 styles, enabling detailed adjustment of visual gravity. This sans serif form incorporating the advantages of neo-grotesque sans serif and humanist sans serif provides a new viewpoint to the genre of sans serif. For details, please read here.
