SST - Font News


The multilingual SST typeface by Akira Kobayashi

With the aim of creating an international font family, Monotype’s Type Director Akira Kobayashi teamed up with Sony’s Chief Art Director Hiroshige Fukuhara to design the neutral sans SST®.

What started out as an exclusive corporate typeface is now available to everyone:
a modern sans serif with clean structures and an organic legibility. The superfamily supports almost 100 languages with numerous font systems and in addition to Latin also offers Greek, Cyrillic, Arabic, Vietnamese, Japanese and Thai characters and symbols. This means SST will be your ideal partner for major international corporate projects and can convince both in print and on screen.
