Variable font

A variable font includes multiple styles of a typeface within a single size-efficient file, along one or more axes (like weight or optical size), affording granular stylistic variation between design extremes. Learn more about our variable fonts.

Symbols

This typeface includes an extensive set of symbols that echo the design details and weight of the other glyphs. Each symbol glyph is properly Unicode-encoded for reliable copy-pasting, webfont fallback behavior, and screen reader accessibility.

Aglet Mono specimen Aglet Sans specimen Aglet Slab specimen

Round architecture informs Aglet Mono, tempering its rigorous, fixed-width rhythm. Clever strategies offset the lopsided spatial artifacts produced by a monospaced design: the dented sides of AVWv, and w compensate for the absence of kerning. Extroverted fjr, and t fill their allotted space with curious hooks, and a brazen g supports the calculated weirdness of some of the other glyphs. 

Aglet Mono includes a set of useful symbols and comes in fourteen styles, like its relatives Aglet Slab and Aglet Sans. Minimal Extra Light resembles a wireframe of the characters, and the vocabulary of shapes grows increasingly diverse as the weights approach the bulky embrace of Ultra.

A display face at heart, Aglet Mono also translates well to the more intimate, routine demands of code. Its atmosphere is distinctly industrial and technical, but also unstudied and ad hoc. Aglet Mono is a typeface for people who make stuff, whether headlines or software.
