What is the Hiruko™ font?
With 15 different styles and support for all sorts of languages, Hiruko is the open and easy sort of font that can be used in almost any situation, as long as you want your message to be readable. Smooth, simple and clear, Hiruko takes inspiration from both Swiss and Japanese styles, focusing on minimalism and function within its form, the idea that less is more and the careful, exquisite craftsmanship that makes such minor changes have a big impact. From extra-light to thick, black weights, in italics or in outlines, Hiruko can be used to convey messages in such a variety of styles that you’ll never be disappointed.
