Monotalic was designed by Nikola Kostić and published by Kostic. Monotalic contains 12 designs and family package alternatives. p > Monotalic was developed as an enjoyable experiment, exploring much better services for the monospaced type design.

Most monospaced (fixed-width) typefaces have the same main style issue relating to the lowercase-- filling the void around l, f, i, j and r. That generally brings the addition of slab serifs to those narrow characters, triggering lots of monospaced fonts to feel and look alike. Monotalic fixes that issue by adopting the handwritten (or cursive) type for those bothersome characters, which enables them to be defined in more strokes, therefore getting a much better distribution of form because fixed-width area. On the other hand, cursive composing normally does not have the legibility of a Roman (Routine upright) design, so Monotalic was developed to be a hybrid, taking the very best of both worlds.

Monospaced typefaces today are primarily utilized for coding. Modern code editors use colored text in order to differentiate between various type of code. So, because environment there's in fact no requirement for standard text styling by including Italics, Bold or other designs, because the code lines are overstated as it is. That is why Monotalic concentrates on one design only, in three widths and 4 weights. The weights permit users to select the perfect contrast of text on screen, depending on their screen resolution and background color in the editor.

Movie scripts are almost solely set in 12pt Courier. It became the industry standard because when embeded in the specific "screenplay format' it helps with the breakdown of the schedule and budgeting process of the movie production. Although it looks entirely different, text set in Monotalic (Normal width) will take the exact same amount of space as Courier.
