Akagi started as a rough sketch on a really long plane ride to Tokyo in 2007. Neil Summerour wanted to develop a sans that was a complete departure from his successful Aaux Pro (now Aaux Next) sans serif family. He wanted this new sans serif to “smile” at you when it’s on the page. With true italics and more weights than you can shake a stick at, it's also supremely useful as a text face, in headings and at display sizes.
