Sometimes dreams come true!
I’m thrilled to announce that next year I will be part of the Latin Category Jury of the prestigious Morisawa Type Design Competition


From 1984 to 2002, Morisawa Inc. held the “The Morisawa Awards International Typeface Design Competition” every three years on seven occasions. With awards given to excellent type design by a jury of internationally renowned designers such as Ikko Tanaka, Adrian Frutiger and Matthew Carter, the competition gained high acclaim as a gateway for type designers. 
From 2012, Morisawa changed its competition name to “Type Design Competition” and established new awards: Akashi Award and People’s Choice Award. It is an internationally opened typeface competition, that will continue to seek typeface designers with new expressive capacity, bold ideas and new attempts. 
So in total, there are three different awards: 

Morisawa Award
Either or both of Kanji and Latin categories may be chosen. There is no limit to the number of submissions per entrant.

People’s Choice
The general public is invited to cast a vote for a favorite entry work online starting on May 2019.

Akashi Award
Entry works are to be judged for a high degree of perfection and proposal abilities against the theme. Entry to Akashi Award is optional. This time, the theme is “Variable fonts”. There is no distinction between the Kanji and Latin categories.
Morisawa Inc. will examine entries for Akashi Award. The judges will comprehensively evaluate whether your work is new and progressive as a variable font.
