Morisawa is a champion of the culture of typography and the connection that it makes between the past and future. Founded in 1924 with the invention of Japans first phototypesetting machine, Morisawa pursues the fine art of typography while embracing new technologies and designs. Each typeface is handcrafted with exquisite attention to detail. Morisawas fonts consistently deliver precision, functionality, and unmatched elegance across the range of viewing environments.
Role is the first stand-alone Latin typeface family released by Morisawa since its founding. Matthew Carter worked in collaboration with a select team of type designers from Japan to produce this extensive superfamily, now making its debut after years of development.
