reno mono is fixed width
Meet Reno Mono, a free, regular fixed-width font designed to be used as a web font while providing a memorable imprint when printed on paper. The mono-spaced and letter shapes rhythm allows for warmth and precision while keeping optimal readability in small screen sizes.
This minimal and contemporary font contained a straightforward set of Latin characters. Symbols are stripped down singularly to keep a recognizable minimal feel.
The fixed width allowed to manufacture of the font quickly. The features are classic yet different, combining influences from very standard old computer fonts with more contemporary twists. It was important to me that the design felt unique yet very homogenous and neutral.
One thing I love about mono-spaced fonts is that their aesthetics are always reminiscent of typewriters, making them feel retro, especially in today’s digital age. The imprint cannot be erased and remind us of obsolete and lost technology. This nostalgic feel is fully embraced, giving it a charming impression once printed on paper.
The letterforms combine all the lovely features I observed in other fixed-width fonts, and I wanted to appropriately merge them in Reno-mono. I wanted to use it on various supports and media for my own corporate identity. Reno mono is my take on a simple font and represents the values of consistency and precision I aspire in my brand.
