About Monospaced Fonts

In the past, we have reviewed several awesome monospaced fonts. Some are a part of an extensive font family (like PlexSpace Mono), some standing firm on their own (like Xanh Mono).

Most fonts are proportional, and each character takes as much width as it needs. Monospaced fonts are fixed width: all characters have the same letter width and occupy the same horizontal space. They originated from the world of typewriters, computers, and terminal interfaces. 

Though rooted in tech, monospaced fonts do not have to be bound to editors and technical environments. Many brands now use them for fashion and branding because monospaced fonts bring feelings of care, and some are more than practical. They are high contrast, striking, and demanding full attention. (Xanh Mono again.)

About Victor Mono

Today we introduce another monospaced font with many characters, Victor Mono. The unique thing about Victor Mono? A distinctive, cursive-influenced italic that looks fantastic next to its monospaced sans serifs. 

It is an awesome coding font with room to explore for branding and marketing purposes as well.

Specific Usage Tips 

How to use Victor Mono for logos?

Victor Mono has a neutral tone with a personal touch. The large x-height makes the font feel open and inviting. Medium, Bold and Semi-bold weights are perfect for logos. The cursive italic can add a personal touch, but make sure the letters are legible. 

How to use Victor Mono for Marketing? 

Victor Mono is a reasonably versatile font for marketing. The italic looks excellent next to the sans serif. It is both graphical and practical, useful for tech materials or educational programming blogs.

As a coding font, Victor Mono takes inspiration from cursive-style letterforms to create true italics that make keywords and comments stand out. Another bonus about Victor Mono is that it has programming ligatures that make things like arrow, “=>” easy.
