Want to learn katakana? Here is a perfect font to read it!!
They were designed by a graphic designer Michael Johnson and his team at johnson banks in London.
They call the font “phonetikana”. Each katakana is written the pronunciation on it!!
For example, a Japanese clothing store UNIQLO is written like this in katakana.
And pronounced “yoo nee koo roh”.
Another example, “toh ma toh”= tomato.
The design is stylish and it will be very useful at tourist sites in Japan.
I wonder if they can design hiragana version of it as “phonetigana” (^o^)/
To see more “phonetikana” work, visit Johnson banks website.
