Monad Sans — A family of type­faces in eight weights

Starting from
$21

Monad Sans is a family of typefaces that builds on tra­ditional and modern grotesques — aspiring to be a modern work­horse, rugged but not wooden, geo­metric yet limber. Avail­able in eight weights, it has a medium x-height and generous character width.

The font family inherits some of the forms of the italic face, with humanist cursive legs and terminals on the a, R, m, n, h and u. Otherwise sharp letter forms have an open ap­pearance, draw­ing focus from each character through the text. The design is intended to work well in digital environments, balancing legibility at smaller sizes with elegant letter forms when set at larger display sizes.

This balance in design lends itself well to corporate branding when a subtle sense of individuality and flair is desired. It is perfect as a replacement for more ubiquitous modern typefaces like Hoefler & Co’s Gotham or Mark Simonson’s Proxima Nova.

Monad Sans has an extensive range of characters, including a repertoire of over 1,200 unique glyphs. Multilingual language support covers Western, Central and South Eastern European, Catalan, Baltic, Turkish, Romanian, Pan African Latin, Dutch, Afrikaans, Pinyin, IPA, Igbo Onwu and Basic Greek. For digital applications, the font is pac­kaged with common icons and pic­tograms mapped to their valid Uni­code points.

OpenType font features such as disc­retionary lig­atures, tabular and old-style numerals, small caps and styl­istic sets are also included. The matching set of true italics makes Monad Sans a powerful family, ready to handle any situation.

Monad is for sale at YouWork­For­Them, with desk­top, web, mobile app and e-book licences available.

Monad Sans is designed by Stephen Hutchings.
