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!

Sorry, there is no kerning 🤪 That’s a feature not a bug!
This is probably stating the obvious: these fonts monospaced. Technically there are a few double width letters, but for all intents less say they every letter is exactly the same width.
Since we aren’t 12 anymore, we won’t joke about big tittles and balls. Rather, we’ll point out how the letters’ skeletons are simple & open, making the text quite legible and easy to read. While the giant dots on characters like i, j, ., !, ?, etc. add quirk & sparkle to keep readers awake. And seriously, who doesn’t love big tittles and/or balls?
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.
There are 6 weights in upright and italic. The final family will also contain two variable fonts for both the upright & italic styles.
This will be the last beta version! The next release will have a few more glyphs and more testing and will be called version 1.0. And just FYI, these ‘final’ versions are coming very soon. If you haven’t licensed Show Me the Mono yet, it’s 50% off the planned final price, so it’s still a great time to jump into the Beta Fonts Program.
Since these fonts are still in progress, we can easily make modifications and improvements based on your opinions. If you have any thoughts, suggestions, criticisms, etc. for this design, please let us know! The form is quick and anonymous (unless you share your name/contact).
We really appreciate your feedback!!!
