Designer Hajime Kawakami was born in 1953 and has been working as a graphic designer since 1974. He won the 1990 Morisawa International Typeface Design Competition Honorable Mention in the Latin Category.

"I am interested in typefaces, especially those of the Latin alphabet. I like their functional and geometric features, together with their simplicity. I would like to live as a designer relating to characters both Japanese and Latin. I am designing these characters, dreaming that my typefaces might be used for a signboard in an unknown town, or used by unknown people in the world."

Akebono means dawn in Japanese. It expresses the pleasure of imbalance. Stems and strokes are mixed - straight and round with slender terminals and arches. Akebono is available in three styles; Regular, Alternate, Italic.

Akebono Alternate resembles the Regular, but features the hooked tails found on the Italic.

Akebono is licensed exclusively to P22/IHOF.
