Monotype Ying Hei™

Meet Monotype's Ying Hei (M Ying Hei™), a new family of Heiti with five weights, designed and built for performance.

M Ying Hei was designed by seasoned typeface designers Kenneth Kwok and Robin Hui to the highest standards. A minimal and contemporary design, M Ying Hei is free from extraneous details, with a well considered skeleton and refined stoke designs. M Ying Hei has a stable centroid, with character densities adjusted based on the number of strokes, providing an even texture and stable rhythm for continuous text. M Ying Hei conveys a professional, rational and efficient image for any document.

Eric Gill Series

The Eric Gill Series is a collection of 77 fonts in three families: Gill Sans® Nova, Joanna® Nova and Joanna Sans Nova. All the typefaces are derived from the original work of the influential British artist Eric Gill (1882-1940), acclaimed in his lifetime as a sculptor, letter-cutter and type designer. These are contemporary digital typefaces - with a wide range of weights, alternate characters and extended language support - that pay homage to Gill's original designs.
