We’re so excited that you’re ready to experiment with our typefaces. You can download all of our trial fonts by filling the form below.
Our trial fonts include all weights, widths, and styles. That means you can preview full families across their whole range of typographic relationships. These include a limited character subset: just the basic latin lowercase and uppercase letters, standard numbers, space, comma, period, and hyphen, with no OpenType features.
Please remember they’re for testing purposes only. If you want to use any of them for your next project, head on over to Type Network to purchase it.
The download is a .zip package with a complete collection of all of our fonts, in both OpenType (.otf) and WebFont (.woff) formats.
Type Network offers 30-day free trials of hosted web fonts with the full character set and features.
Here’s the gist
Occupant Fonts is a Morisawa Brand. By using our Trial Fonts, you’re entering into an agreement with Morisawa. We only include a limited subset of characters in our Trial Font. This subset is a reminder to you that these fonts are not for commercial use.
We’ve provided some comments on the legal language first to hopefully help with your understanding. Our full agreement details below apply. By downloading our trial fonts, you’re consenting to the full License Agreement.
This agreement contains technical, legal language, which is defined in this section. Most importantly, this agreement only permits the evaluation of the trial fonts. This means you can try the fonts on your computer, but you can’t send the fonts to anyone, including your clients or customers. You can send documents you create with our trial fonts to other people, as long as the documents are for non-commercial, evaluation purposes.
This agreement entitles you to install the trial fonts on your computer, use the fonts in your applications, print the fonts out, embed them into PDFs for evaluation. You can send PDFs to clients and collaborators, as long as those documents are for non-commercial, evaluation purposes.
Again, under this agreement, you’re not allowed to use these fonts for commercial purposes. You’re also prohibited from transferring this license agreement to anyone else. On top of that, please use the fonts in the trial as-is. That means you can’t decompile or modify the fonts in any way. For example, you’re not allowed to change the outlines of the glyphs in our trial fonts.
You’re not allowed to redistribute or sell our trial fonts. If you find someone who wants to download them, great! Direct that person to this website!
This is a license agreement; in other words, we retain the ownership rights to these trial fonts and are allowing you to use them. If you decompile the fonts and modify them, you are agreeing to give us the ownership rights to any modifications you make–so please don’t modify our fonts!
Be warned: we can’t guarantee that our fonts are totally free of errors or defects, although we do try out best! If you find an issue, feel free to let us know by emailing [email protected].
We take this license agreement seriously. If we have cause to suspect that you’re in breach of the license, we have the right to get in touch with you and ask you to prove that you haven’t by providing written documentation. If your document doesn’t convince us, we reserve the right to visit you, and review your hardware, to make sure you’re complying with this license.
If you breach this agreement, you agree to indemnify us against any problems caused by your breach. This means that you assume all the responsibility for any legal issues you cause, and we assume none of it. That includes fees and damages: money covering legal and accounting expenses caused by a breach of this agreement, and money that’s paid to compensate us for damages the breach has caused.
If we find that you’re in breach of this agreement, then you’ll need to pay us monetary damages. The damages will be calculated on a case by case basis. As a rule of thumb, they’ll be around the amount for a single font license for each font that was reproduced, times the number of reproductions that were made. Like we’ve said before, please don’t reproduce or modify our trial fonts.
So, please don’t violate the agreement, and we’ll never need to think about this paragraph again. If we don’t enforce a portion of this agreement, that doesn’t mean we don’t care about it! We take this agreement seriously and are trusting you to take it seriously, too.
Again, our fonts are provided as-is, and we don’t guarantee any support in using them. That said, if you do encounter an issue or have a question, email us at [email protected], and we’ll try and get back to you as quickly as we can.
If you need to communicate with us formally or legally, please mail us at 795 Folsom St. 1F San Francisco CA 94107 USA.
The full agreement below, along with our general EULA, available at TypeNetwork, is our entire agreement. Please remember that these comments are just that: comments. They just try to make it a little clearer for you and do not affect it.

9. SUPPORT SERVICES.
Occupant Fonts and Morisawa will not provide support services with respect to the Trial Fonts.
10. COMPLIANCE WITH LICENSE.
The Trial Fonts are protected by copyright law, international treaties relating to copyright law and other laws and ordinances. Licensee shall create a secure environment in which to use the software that includes Fonts. With respect to compliance with this Agreement, Licensee shall, when requested by Morisawa, certify within thirty (30) days by providing documents to Morisawa including a written installation status report that the Trial Fonts, Typeface and Character Information are being used in accordance with this Agreement.
If Morisawa reasonably believes that Licensee is in breach of this Agreement, Morisawa may, upon giving reasonable advance notice to Licensee, conduct an audit of the computers, hard discs, CD-ROMs or other back-up media and documents at Licensee’s head office or other place of business, Licensee’s home, or other locations that Morisawa reasonably believes that an audit is necessary to determine whether a breach has occurred, during Licensee’s regular business hours. Even after this Agreement has ended, Licensee shall accept the conducting of an audit where Morisawa has given notice of the aforementioned audit within three years of termination of this Agreement, even if the audit is scheduled on the date after such three-year period has passed.
12. DAMAGES ON DEFAULT.
It should be noted that where, either as a result of the audit pursuant to Section 11 or by disclosure of the installation status of Fonts by Licensee itself, unauthorized reproduction of Fonts are found to exist, Licensee shall pay Morisawa at least the amount paid for each Font license multiplied by the number unauthorized reproductions of Fonts and the cost of implementing the audit in question. The foregoing calculation method only provides the minimum damage Morisawa is entitled to recover, and shall not be construed as Morisawa’s waiver of its right to recover other damages based on the actual damage suffered by Morisawa, which may be pursued by Morisawa at a later date. If Fonts are found to exist or have existed in a Device after termination of the applicable Font license, it is deemed to be an unauthorized reproduction of Fonts.
Morisawa may terminate this Agreement at any time for any reason. Licensee may terminate this Agreement if it does not accept the amendments or Supplementary Terms as set forth in Section 16.
14. EFFECT OF TERMINATION.
(1)Termination of the Term may result in the immediate deactivation and deletion of the Trial Fonts from the Device. Irrespective of the reason for the termination of this Agreement, any payments made by Licensee to Morisawa under this Agreement shall be non-refundable to the extent permitted by applicable laws.
(2) Notwithstanding the foregoing, the following provisions shall survive any termination of this Agreement: Articles 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22 and 23.
15. UPDATES AND MODIFICATIONS.
Morisawa may, to ensure that the Trial Fonts are used within the scope of this Agreement, update or modify the Trial Fonts from time to time.
Morisawa may amend the terms and conditions of this Agreement at its own discretion and may also set forth terms and conditions that supplement this Agreement (hereinafter, the “Supplementary Terms”). Amendments to this Agreement and Supplementary Terms shall be posted to the prescribed Morisawa website seven (7) days prior to such amendments and Supplementary Terms going into effect, provided that such amendments and Supplementary Terms shall be posted thirty (30) days prior to such amendments and Supplementary Terms go into effect if such changes are disadvantageous to the Licensee (such seven (7)-day or thirty (30)-day period, as applicable, the “Acceptance Period”). Morisawa shall notify the Licensee of the updated terms of this Agreement, the effective date, and reason for such amendments by email or other means. If any change to this Agreement is not acceptable to Licensee, Licensee’s sole remedy is to express his or her refusal to such changes, during the Acceptance Period. In the case where there is no such refusal during the Acceptance Period, it is deemed that Licensee has consented to such changes of this Agreement.
17. GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION.
This Agreement, including any obligations, rights, and claims of the parties arising out of or in connection with this Agreement, any questions regarding its validity, and any amendments hereto – irrespective of the legal grounds (e.g., under contract, tort or otherwise) – shall be exclusively governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, USA, excluding their conflict of laws provisions. If the Licensee has their place of habitual residence within a Member State of the European Union and acts as a consumer within the scope of Regulation (EC) No. 593/2008 in entering into this Agreement, the foregoing choice of governing law shall not have the result of depriving the Licensee of the protection afforded to them by provisions that cannot be derogated from by agreement by virtue of the laws applicable where they habitually reside.
18. ENTIRE AGREEMENT AND NO AMENDMENT.
The terms of this Agreement together with any user policy or end-user license agreement you may have been presented or agreed to with Morisawa, contain the entire agreement between Morisawa and Licensee with respect to the Trial Fonts and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written, between Morisawa and Licensee with respect to the Trial Fonts. Subject to Article 16, this Agreement may not be modified or amended except in writing and if signed by an authorized representative of Morisawa.
19. WAIVER, SEVERABILITY.
Any failure to enforce any provision of the terms of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver thereof or of any other provision hereof. None of the conditions of this Agreement will be considered waived unless such waiver is in writing and approved by Morisawa. No such waiver will be a waiver of any past or future default, breach or modification of any of the conditions of this Agreement unless expressly stipulated in such waiver. If any provision of the terms of this Agreement is found to be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, that provision will be deemed severable from the terms of this Agreement and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provision.
The headings in this Agreement are solely for convenience of reference and will not affect its interpretation. Unless the context otherwise requires, the singular includes the plural, and the plural includes the singular. Unless otherwise specifically stated, references to Article and Sections refer to sections in the main body of this Agreement and the words “herein,” “hereof,” and “hereunder” and other words of similar import refer to this Agreement as a whole and not to any particular section or paragraph.
