Monospaced typefaces were once primarily associated with typewriters… now they are mostly used by programmers. But there’s no reason they can’t be used everywhere! The strict grid, forcing the letters to be exactly the same width, gives your typesetting a funky rhythm and a surprising texture. 💯% cool!

…Keming

Sorry, there is no kerning 🤪 That’s a feature – not a bug! This is probably stating the obvious: these fonts are monospaced. Technically there are a few double width letters, but for all intents let’s just say every letter is exactly the same width.


 

…Speckly Bits

Since we aren’t 12 anymore, we won’t joke about big tittles & balls. Rather, we’ll point out how the letters’ skeletons are simple & open, making the text legible & easy to read. Then to jazz things up, giant dots (e.g. ä, i, j, :, !, ?, etc…) add speckle & quirk to tickle your readers’ eyeballs and keep them engaged.

 

…Less Speckle

So maybe you don’t love interesting sparkle. There may even be times some people want a little less salsa in their burritos. We aren’t secretly, silently judging. For these occasions, we have modified i’s and j’s with appropriately sized dots – these won’t stick out as much and look so weird. Maybe this is a good thing for you.

…Stylish Punctuation & Symbols

Most punctuation and symbols come in two forms: The default is thin, and it stays thin in every weight. This gives a effortlessly unique look to your text – especially in the bolder weights. But there’s also more traditional versions of these glyphs as well – ones that properly change and match the selected weight. This makes the texture a bit toned down in the bold weights. Sometimes this is a good thing.

 

…Enclosed Letters & Numbers

For years, pog printers and porcelain tile manufactures have been emailing – begging for letters inside squares & circles. Making their dreams come true and helping to streamline their design processes we are serving up four sets of A-Z & 0-9 encapsulated in shapes like little carbonited Han Solos.

Not only are there all base letters in circles & squares, it’s also possible to typeset any of the 400+ supported languages. Each set of enclosed letters has an additional 96 characters to typeset diacritics and unique letters that your language may require.

 

…Emojis

There are now over 300 ‘extras’ in each weight! These include a wide range of widely useful to super specific dingbats: 38 arrows, letters & numbers in circles & squares (both in black & white), all of Unicode’s gender symbols, and well as many shapes / check marks / hearts & more. Aside from these, there are tons of stylish emojis – currently 54 faces, drinks, icons, etc. to convey your thoughts without words.

…Arrows

This quiver overflowing with arrows! 76 arrows to be exact. Fat arrows, skinny arrows, arrows with big tails, arrows in multiple directions… you wanna point to something, you have tons o’ options. Each arrow comes in two versions: the default is always thin (regardless of the weight) & the other visually matches each weight.

Bonus: left & right arrows have extendable tails! Use any combo of hyphen, en dash, or em dash to make them longer automatically. (These use the calt feature, maybe TMI.)

The Family

There are 6 weights in upright and italic. Included in the full family pack is also two variable fonts for more weight options and less files.

With the help of two biotechnologists, Karin Fister and Iztok Fister Jr. encoded a basic computer program in Python Programming language into Nicotiana benthamiana. They first encoded a “Hello World” computer program into a DNA code, synthesized it and cloned this coded DNA into a plasmid-vector to be used further for transformation into Nicotiana benthamiana plants. The encoded program was reconstructed from the resulting seedlings with 100% accuracy by showing “Hello World” on the computer screen. Their approach demonstrated that artificially encoded data can be stored and multiplied within plants without affecting their vigor and fertility. It also takes a step forward from storing data into a naked DNA molecule. It is inherent in progeny and authentically reproducible while the reduced metabolism of the seeds provides an additional protection for encoded DNA archives.

License FAQ

Desktop:

Commercial: This is for general use for most (offline) typesetting. The fonts may be used for just about any print application, including branding, logos, magazines, posters, etc.

Personal: This license is only for individuals who are using the fonts for their own private, non-commercial use. This generally means personal projects for school or home use with no direct or indirect connection to making money. This license is explicitly excluding any use on published materials, branding for business, or for anything with commercial intent.

Student: This discount is valid for current, full time students of any level. The student license remains valid even after graduation, and is allowed for commercial work, so you don't need to worry about re-licensing later.

 

Web:

Our web fonts are distributed as WOFF, WOFF2, & EOT formats. They are licensed per domain and based on the traffic your website receives at the time of licensing. So, if you start out smaller then grow, there’s no need to update your license later. It’s also a one time fee so there are no annual or reoccurring costs.

< 100K pageviews/month: For websites with under 100,000 pageviews per month.

< 1M pageviews/month: For websites with 100,000 to 1 million pageviews per month.

< 10M pageviews/month: For websites with 1 to 10 million pageviews per month.

> 10M pageviews/month: For websites with more than 10 million pageviews per month.

 

Embedding:

App: This license is for embedding fonts into mobile or desktop applications. The license is valid on a per major version of your app. Meaning, the fonts are always allowed on smaller free updates to your app, but for more substantial paid updates an additional license must be purchased.

ePub: This license covers most digital publishing formats including EPUB, AZW, IBA, PDF, and others. The fonts are licensed on a per-title usage, but they may be used on any number of different file formats for the same title (meaning you can produce EPUB & PDF versions of the same title with the same license). Per-title means one specific book or one issue of a magazine, not a series. Additional titles can be purchased later for only a bit extra.

Additional explanations can be found on our FAQ page.

Or just write to us, we are happy to answer any questions.
