Adobe has long supported the design community and joined PRINT this year as the inaugural presenting sponsor of the 2020 PRINT Awards. Adobe believes that everyone has a story to tell and knows that it is ever more important to create a sense of community and shared wellbeing while amplifying positivity and celebrating creativity. As part of the PRINT Awards, the Adobe Dimension Design Award encouraged entrants to create a unique piece of design in the form of a poster, web banner or marketing piece for print, web or digital channels using Creative Cloud software, Adobe Dimension and 3D. As one of PRINT’s valued partners, Adobe provides the PRINT audience with information about Adobe Stock, 3D Visualization and Virtual Photography as well as the Adobe Creative Cloud which offers the world’s best creative apps and services so designers can make anything they can imagine, wherever they’re inspired.
Morisawa is passionate about fonts and type—the most basic building blocks of words—and is
constantly forging ahead with the creation of innovovative new typefaces. The PRINT site was designed with the support of Morisawa who provided the font family, ROLE, the first stand-alone Latin typeface family released by Morisawa since the type foundry was established in Osaka, Japan, in 1924. This new font family was created by renowned type designer, Matthew Carter, who drew the preliminary letter forms in collaboration with a team from Japan — Morisawa designers Sakura Taruno and Shotaro Nakano with Kunihiko Okano from Shotype Design who then collaborated with Carter in refining the faces. Later additional Morisawa designers Yuya Kobari and Ai Handa joined the Role team.
