Humanist sans, monospaced form

Data in tables is often easier to digest with monospaced fonts, tabular matter shouldn’t have to be set in difficult-to-read text, with letters based on 1950s typewriters. Unlike books, business communication and financial reports aren’t always read for pleasure – their contents must be understood quickly. Drive Mono is a family of fixed-width fonts; like Black[Foundry]’s Drive, it is designed in a humanist style, with open counters. Most of the characters are drawn with monolinear strokes, and each part of any given letterform is equally sharp and clear.

Drive Mono includes nine weights, ranging from a very thin Hairline weight through a heavy Extrabold. Every weight has corresponding upright and italic fonts. Thanks to this wide number of fonts, users can combine multiple weights together to increase contrast within a text. All 18 Drive Mono fonts have the same character width, too, so you can switch from one font to another without any changes in line-wrap. While Drive Mono is optimised for use at smaller sizes, its extreme weights are well-suited for headlines and other large texts. Drive Mono is great for both print-based designs and on-screen usage. It is an excellent option for presenting code, too.

Each of Drive Mono’s 18 fonts has over 500 glyphs in its character set. This substantial range includes diacritics for all European languages written with the Latin script, as well as several directional arrows and pre-composed fractions. The numerals come in various typographical options: the fonts have both lining and oldstyle figures, as well as full sets of numerators, denominators, superscripts, and subscripts.
