The condensed Kiro font, a simple and softened sans-serif type family designed by Ryoichi Tsunekawa.
Ryoichi Tsunekawa is a Japanese type designer. He designed the Kiro font family in 2014 for his own type foundry Flat-it. Kiro is a condensed sans-serif family with a simple and softened shape. The complete Kiro font family consists of 12 styles including 6 weights (ranging from Thin to Extra Bold) plus matching Italics for each weight. Its balanced design as well as the diverse styles ensure a certain degree of flexibility for a broad range of typographical use such as headlines, titles, and body texts. A large x-height gives this typeface great legibility.
Kiro’s construction is based on a minimalized design by removing all unnecessary stems. Besides the clean geometric shapes, its subtle rounded corners make it a warm and friendly sans-serif font family, while the simple semi-modular design conveys a modern feel. Kiro’s extensive character set supports multiple languages including almost all European languages: Western, Central, South Eastern Europeans and Afrikaans as well. The family is also equipped with several OpenType features such as superior figures, inferior figures, denominators, numerators and fraction.
