ACAF

ACAF stands for Ascender Compact Asian Fonts. Their blurb at the launch in 2006: ACAF uses proprietary techniques to render the complex ideographs found in Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Japanese and Korean (CJK) scripts. By using component outlines, versus entire character outlines, ACAF offers significant benefits over standard TrueType or OpenType font formats. And unlike other compact font formats, such as stroke or stick fonts, the quality of Ascender Compact Asian Fonts is such that no embedded bitmaps are necessary for typical screen sizes. This savings in space by reusing pierces of font outlines is useful for high quality (scalable) fonts on mobile devices and digital TVs. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Bitstream Cyberbit

From Bitstream's web page: "Bitstream Cyberbit is our award-winning international font. Based on one of our most popular and readable type designs (Dutch 801 BT [note: Bitstream's version of Times and Times New Roman]), it includes all the typographic characters for most of the world's major languages. Cyberbit is now available! The product release includes the roman weight of Dutch 801 BT, a "serif" font. (A serif font has small finishing strokes at the end of the main stems, arms, and tails of characters, while a sanserif font does not.) The font is in TrueType format for Windows 95 and Windows NT. Future releases will provide support for "sanserif" typefaces, other platforms, other font formats, and even more languages. Bitstream Cyberbit is a work in progress. Bitstream is now distributing the roman weight of Cyberbit, free of charge, over the Internet! Remember, this release is in TrueType format for Windows 95 and Windows NT". --- Well, Bitstream no longer offers the font. It is still out there however. Try here, here, here, or here. Has these unicode ranges: Basic Latin, Latin-1 Supplement, Latin Extended-A, Latin Extended-B, Spacing Modifier Letters, Greek, Cyrillic, Hebrew Extended (A and B blocks combined), Thai, Latin Extended Additional, General Punctuation, Currency Symbols, Letterlike Symbols, Number Forms, Arrows, Mathematical Operators, Miscellaneous Technical, Box Drawing, Block Elements, Geometric Shapes, Miscellaneous Dingbats, Alphabetic Presentation Forms, Combining Diacritical Marks, Enclosed Alphanumerics, Arabic, Arabic Presentation Forms-A and -B, CJK (Chinese, Japanese, Korean) Symbols and Punctuation, Hiragana, Katakana, Bopomofo, Hangul Compatibility Jamo, Enclosed CJK Letters and Months, CJK Compatibility, Hangul, CJK Unified Ideographs, CJK Compatibility Ideographs, CJK Compatibility Forms, Small Form Variants, and Halfwidth and Fullwidth Forms.

Bon Min

South Korean type designer who graduated from the MATD program at the University of reading in 2013. He writes about his graduation typeface Barbari, which covers Latin and Hangul, and has a range of sans and serif styles: The brush style was chosen to find a harmonization point between the Hangul and the Latin alphabet, solving the problems with different functions of the brush for each script. The Hangul brush script implies tradition and seriousness, while Latin follows the rhythmical movement of the human hand. Barbari is an interim result of this approach, intended for bilingual text in magazines and journals. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Brian Stell

Brian Stell works in the Font and Text team within Google's Internationalization Engineering group. He has been focused on engineering to make web fonts fast for all languages including Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.

Speaker at ATypI 2013 in Amsterdam: Roboto: faster than a speeding bullet. The abstract sounds interesting: This talk looks at the current status of Google's work to deliver fonts 'instantly' to Chrome users. With 'instant' fonts, website designers no longer have to choose between web fonts (that slow the site down) or 'web safe' fonts (that are only available in limited styles). Imagine being free to use your branding fonts in extra-light, book, normal, medium, bold, or ultra-bold - with italic, condensed, and slab variants. A brief overview of how the technology works is presented along with references to more information. Also discussed are efforts to make this work on other major browsers. [Google] [More]  ⦿

In 2013, Hyun-Seung Lee, Dae-Hoon Hahm and Min-Joo Ham jointly designed the layered type system Core Circus---as a reaction to the hugely successful Trend typeface by Latinotype, I guess. The slab version is Core Magic (2014). See also Core Circus Rough (2014) and Core Magic Rough (2014), both jointly designed by Hyun-Seung Lee, Dae-Hoon Hahm and Dong-Kwan Kim.

Hangul

The Korean alphabet is called Hangul or Hangeul. Each letter in Hangeul indicates an individual sound or phoneme. Hangeul is an alphabet system proposed by King Sejong in 1443 during the Joseon dynasty---it was initially called Hunminjeongeum ("the right sound to teach the people"). King Sejong tried to make an alphabet that matched the structure of Korean, and was easy to learn and write. In the end, there were 28 letters (11 vowels and 17 consonants). Useless letters were deleted and useful ones were added, resulting in 40 letters (21 vowels and 19 consonants). [Google] [More]  ⦿

Microsoft fonts for Chinese, Japanese, Korean

Someone posted this on alt.binaries.fonts. To obtain a free Japanese TrueType font from Microsoft: (1) run Microsoft Internet Explorer (MSIE); (2) go to any web page; (3) change the View menu / Encoding item to Japanese; and (4) wait for several megabytes to download. Use the same procedure for Chinese or Korean. Microsoft has a web page for these downloads. Search for the keywords "Chinese", "Japanese", or "Korean" (without the quotes) on the http://office.microsoft.com/ web site. You want the "language pack" downloads. These pages often move, but recently were: Japanese (2557 KB with the "MS Gothic" font), Korean (1985 KB with the "GulimChe" font), Simplified Chinese (2561 KB with "MS Hei" and "MS Song" fonts), Traditional Chinese (3541 KB with the "MingLiU" font).

In 2013, Hyun-Seung Lee, Dae-Hoon Hahm and Min-Joo Ham jointly designed the layered type system Core Circus---as a reaction to the hugely successful Trend typeface by Latinotype, I guess. The slab version is Core Magic (2014). See also Core Circus Rough (2014) and Core Magic Rough (2014), both jointly designed by Hyun-Seung Lee, Dae-Hoon Hahm and Dong-Kwan Kim. Core Slab M (2013) is a 31-style companion of Core Sans M---it is a soft rounded slab with some seriffy tails mixed in with standard slab terminals. Core Mellow (2013) is a condensed organic rounded sans family that comes in 21 weights.

In 2014, Hyun-Seung Lee, Dae-Hoon Hahm and Min-Joo Ham codesigned Core Sans D, Core Sans A, Core Rhino, Core Narae Pro (a Comic Sans alternative) and Core Deco (a 14-style art deco family). [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

Monotype's East Asian Stroke Font Set

Monotype states: Traditional Asian TrueType fonts require megabytes of storage too much for most memory-restricted or low-resolution devices. Yet, storage requirements can be reduced 90 percent or more using our stroke-based fonts. For example, a standard GB 2312 Simplified Chinese TrueType font with 7,663 characters is about 2.7 MB. Our stroke font equivalent is under 250 KB. Cell phones, set-top boxes, PDAs, most other wireless devices and even operating systems benefit from stroke-based fonts. Our fully scalable stroke-based fonts consist of composite strokes or graphemes. These simple shapes appear as pen strokes or lines and are used repeatedly to build complex East Asian characters. Graphemes offer huge storage savings. The same graphemes are used to construct various characters that can add up to thousands in a single font. Another major advantage lies in the technologys simplicity: less than half the number of points are needed to render characters much less than building characters using traditional outlines where points are located on the edges of shapes rather than at the centerlines. Our stroke-based fonts support both native and Unicode encodings and are available for Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Japanese and Korean scripts. [Google] [More]  ⦿

The four options for online communications camouflage [called XED, Noise, False, and Camo] each have characteristics that keep them legible to humans, but baffling to machines.

Source Han Sans

In July 2014, Adobe and Google jointly announced the publication of the free Asian typeface family Source Han Sans for Chinese (traditional (both Taiwan and Hong Kong) and simplified), Japanese, Korean, Greek, Cyrillic and Latin. This project, based on designs originally due to Ryoko Nishizuka, a senior Adobe designer in Tokyo, started in 2010. The fonts and original code are downloadable from SourceForge and GitHub. Blog page at Typekit. Blog post at Google. The other name for the family, Noto Sans CJK, is used by Google.The open source license even permits modification of the glyphs.

The 42 fonts are designed for small devices, and thus, the glyphs are monolinear and simple. Each font weight in the family has a total of 65,535 glyphs (the maximum number of characters supported in the OpenType format), and the entire family contains just under half a million total glyphs. Adobe sought expertise from foundries such as Iwata Corp to expand the Japanese glyph selection, Sandoll Communication, designer of Korean Hangul and Changzhou SinoType, Adobe's longtime collaborator in China.

On the Google side of the project, where the fonts are added to the Noto family (which covers all major languages of the world and many others, including European, African, Middle Eastern, Indic, South and Southeast Asian, Central Asian, American, and East Asian languages, and, since the joint release with Adobe in 2014, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, and minority languages related to them), users can download all Noto fonts freely in a 43 MB file.

References: Ken Lunde (Adobe) on the design and development of Pan-CJK fonts (2010).

A truetype tool by UniDoc System. TrueKeys is the only font conversion utility that handles Chinese/Japanese/Korean TrueType font conversion between Windows and Mac OS platforms. Can also be used to add Unicode support (required for OS X) to older fonts that don't have it. US$50, and crippled free demo. An OS X version is available. The manufacturer reports: "TrueKeys is a Chinese, Japanese, Korean (CJK) 2-byte truetype font conversion utilities. What makes it different from other truetype utilities such as TTConvert 1.5 and TrueConvert 0.3b is that it generates its own cmap table for specified language encoding, and assemble the original font data into a new truetype. This strategy corrects some common PC font problems such as no Mac cmap table support, etc. When TTConvert or TrueConvert does not work for your font, you should seriously try TrueKeys. TrueKeys v3.5 is guarenteed to work with any Mac format CJK truetypes and Windows format truetypes (including TTC format). TrueKeys v3.6 is currently in beta, supporting both pre-MacOS 9 and MacOS X platform." [Google] [More]  ⦿

urw++

URW++ Design&Development GmbH is a Hamburg-based foundry established in 1995 by Svend Bang, Hans-Jochen Lau, Peter Rosenfeld, and Jürgen Willrodt. URW stands for Unternehmensberatung Rubow Weber, named after Gerhard Rubow and Rudolf Weber, cofounders of the original URW company from which urw++ evolved. It offers a whole range of font services and has an extensive (7000+) font library. At the basis of the early development of many classy PostScript fonts. For example, in 1999, URW++ donated the 35 core PostScript fonts (renamed) under the GNU GPL license to the Ghostscript project. The great 3000-font CD costs about 2000DM. Other CDs are more expensive: on the ITF CD, each font is about 100DM! URW sells fonts and font families with complete rights (you can change, resell, embed, anything, except use the original name), with examples ranging from 2k for a complete family of 12 to 5k for a collection of 250 fonts. This practice continues until today: URW++ thus provides a great service to software developers who want to include high-quality typefaces in their software applications. URW has offices in many countries. In the first decade of the 21st century, freelance type designer Ralph M. Unger contributed most frequently to the URW library. OpenType collection guide (in PDF).

Selected releases: URW Egyptienne, URW Grotesk (1985, Hermann Zapf), Anzeigen Grotesk (2009), Clarendon No 1 URW, Saa Series (industrial sans), Nimbus Sans, Nimbus Sans Novus, Nimbus Sans Europa (covering Latin, Greek, Baltic, Cyrillic, Central European, Turkish, Romanian, and so forth), Nimbus Roman No 9 (2001), Nimbus Sans Global and Nimbus Roman Global, each at about 2000 Euros, and each containing 35,000 glyphs, from kanji/Chinese/Korean to all European languages.
