    Since its inception in 1984, the Morisawa Type Design Competition has been dedicated to fostering innovation and creativity in type design, providing a prestigious platform for both emerging and established designers. This year’s competition has expanded its scope to include five distinct categories: Japanese, Latin, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, and Hangeul. This diversification underscores Morisawa’s commitment to celebrating the rich tapestry of global typography and promoting the art of type design in various linguistic contexts.

    The competition invites designers to submit their most innovative and adventurous works, challenging them to push the boundaries of typeface design. The rigorous judging process is conducted by a panel of renowned experts in the field, ensuring that each submission is evaluated fairly and anonymously. This year’s judges include distinguished professionals like Laura Meseguer and Ilya Ruderman for the Latin category, and Zhu Zhiwei and Chen Rong for the Simplified Chinese category. Their diverse backgrounds and expertise promise a comprehensive and multifaceted assessment of the entries, ensuring that the best designs are recognized and celebrated.
