Comments by Yukiyoshi Tanaka, President of SCREEN Graphic Solutions Co., Ltd.
Adobe and SCREEN GA have been important business partners in the graphic arts field for many years and we are very pleased to announce our distribution agreement. I believe that having Hiragino fonts available via Adobe Fonts will increase the opportunity for many designers and creative professionals to use them and produce more diverse and expressive designs.
Our company will continue to provide high-quality fonts that support the development of the creative industry.
We also hope to deepen our cooperative relationship with Adobe so we can provide ever better services.

Comments by Taro Yamamoto of Adobe Japan
Hiragino fonts have been widely used for professional printed publications, for office documents, in computer operating systems, and on mobile devices. Every typeface in the family shares a clean and modern appearance, with unique characteristics well founded in traditional typeface design.
Well-proportioned, bright and elegant design makes the fonts easy to use. Adobe Fonts will support Hiragino Kaku Gothic W3 and W6, and Hiragino Mincho W3 and W6. We expect the fonts to greatly help document interchange between different OS environments.
