Spaced Space Logo Font

Fancy a modern and futuristic font with unique lowercase? Spaced is a sans-serif typeface that will add extra pizzaz to your designs, without compromising on the readability. It comes with uppercase and lowercase letters that you can mix and match as per your requirement, tons of glyphs, special alternates, and ligatures.

Why Comic Sans is so hated?

Comic Sans isn’t Used as Intended Comic Sans was originally designed to be used in the talk bubbles of a program called Microsoft Bob. The font wasn’t completed in time to actually make it into the program, but it lived on to eventually ship with Windows 95; and that’s when the font really got ugly.

Ichiji Type

This is a font that comes with a design that’s truly out of this world. It will definitely make your text look as if it’s written in a weird alien language. Ichiji is a font that guaranteed to give your designs a unique look and feel.

07. Monoid

Andreas Larsen drew up a list of priorities when he set out to design Monoid. He wanted it to be legible, compact (the more code you can fit on one screen, the better), and “pretty”. To achieve all this, he compared three other programming fonts – Fira Mono, Source Code Pro and Pragmata Pro – and took note of features he liked and those he didn’t in order to inform his design. 

Like many programming fonts, Monoid has extra-large punctuation marks and operators, apertures are large to help make characters more distinguishable, and ascenders and descenders are kept short. Smart design decisions have been taken to make Monoid both compact and highly legible. It has programming ligatures, and there’s also a special feature called Monoisome which enables you to see Font Awesome icons in your code. Monoid is free and open source, so you can even tweak it to your tastes if you like.

05. Dank Mono

Phil Plückthun’s Dank Mono is billed as a font “designed for aesthetes with code and Retina displays in mind”. Like Fira Code, it has programming ligatures, and there’s also a cursive italic variant that’s useful for distinguishing different types of text within your code. Overall this font has been created for coders who have an eye for design, and the unusual lowercase ‘f’ is known for being particularly beloved among Dank fans. 

Dank supports the Western, Eastern, Central and Southern European Latin character sets, and you can use it within CodePen. To get Dank, you’ll need to pay – a personal licence is £24 and a commercial one is £60. But if you’re a type connoisseur and you’re smitten with that jaunty ‘f’, it might well be worth treating yourself to some Dankness.
