Features of Hiragino Gyosho

Based on the letters written by the brush scribe Kei Tanaka, "Hiragino Gyosho" was created by Jiyu Kobo by adjusting the type, the line weight, line quality, and the strokes. It is designed to have a free and easy appearance while fitting inside the bounding box. The typeface comes in two weights: W4 and W8. While most of the bold brush letters are in the Kaisho style, the extra bold "Hiragino Gyosho W8" is perfect for headlines and titles in magazines and ads, as well as packaging and telop. "Hiragino Gyosho W4" can be used for body text when the proper weight of the Gyosho style is desired.
