The Tazugane Gothic typeface began as a project to develop a companion Japanese typeface for Monotype’s Latin typeface, Neue Frutiger®. The aim was to create a humanist sans serif face possessing the steadiness of the Neue Frutiger typeface and nearly unlimited applicability in a broad range of uses, from signage and publishing to advertising and the web. When Japanese and Latin typefaces are used together in the same text, the Latin alphabet sometimes looks smaller in comparison to kanji and kana (hiragana and katakana). In order to avoid this problem as much as possible, the Tazugane Gothic typeface includes a version of the Neue Frutiger typeface that has been slightly enlarged and given a baseline shift.
