Source Han Sans
Adobe (NASDAQ: ADBE) announced Tuesday the release of Source Han Sans, an open source typeface supporting Japanese, Chinese and Korean, as well as Latin, Greek and Cyrillic alphabets.
It was developed in collaboration with Adobe’s key partner Google and contracted foundry partners across East Asia (Changzhou SinoType, Iwata Corporation, and Sandoll Communication).
Source Han Sans marks a new typeface in terms of size, scale, complexity and support for Japanese, Chinese and Korean all within the same font family.
It provides designers and developers creating content for international audiences one uniform font to use in print and Web files no matter the language – eliminating the need to license multiple fonts.
Source Han Sans is available for immediate desktop use via Adobe Typekit and also via the Typekit service included with Adobe Creative Cloud.
Users can also download Source Han Sans for free through SourceForge or GitHub.
