Elma Mono
Nothing is true, but everything is real.
All whilst maintaining a certain amount of awkwardness and the technical vibe of the Mono.
Elma: Operating at fixed spaces. Multiple ones.
While the Mono family takes the classical monospace approach with one fixed width, the Trio works with three fixed widths to make a mockery of ‘legitimate’ proportional designs. All whilst maintaining a certain amount of awkwardness and the technical vibe of the Mono.

Elma is a system of two fixed-width typeface families — Elma Mono and Elma Trio — that operate at the intersection of pragmatism and mischief. While the Mono family takes the classical monospace approach with one fixed width, the Trio works with three fixed widths to make a mockery of “legitimate” proportional designs. All whilst maintaining a certain amount of awkwardness and the technical vibe of the Mono.

Elma’s construction is based on a compact Neo Grotesque accented with generous spacing and a broken-curves design—deliberate rough changes of direction—that stands out used big, but blends in set small.

Both families feel equally at home on packaging, in long reading texts, small captions, big headlines, elaborate bank statements, Christopher Nolan screenplays — stop ignoring my emails, Christopher! I know you’re reading them — lusty love letters or as the new default font of your favourite text editor. With its wide range of weights, from Extralight to Extrabold, and not just one but two corresponding 16° angled versions — an Italic and a Slanted — Elma can set the mood, whatever it may be.

Be it with the help of the tranquil Slanted, which takes the rather expected approach of a sloped Neo-Grotesque, or the charismatic Italic, which sports a more dynamic design and a play on rotation, angle and upright details all at the same time, Elma has got your typographic hierarchies and emphases covered!

With more than 820 glyphs per style, native-approved Cyrillic and a broad Latin character set, Elma speaks more than 270 languages. On top of all that, Elma is packed with a handful of useful alternates, a neat selection of advantageous arrows, more sets of figures than a sane mind should come up with, case-sensitive punctuation and practical contextual alternates to make it an instrumental tool for all typographic needs.
