Operator – A New Monospace Typeface
Published on by Eric L. Barnes
Hoefler & Co. today announced the release of a new commercial typeface named Operator:
What if, in addition to shedding the unwanted baggage of the typewriter, we also looked to the programming environment as a place where type could make a difference? Like many screen fonts before it, Operator could pay extra attention to the brackets and braces and punctuation marks more critical in code than in text. But if Operator took the unusual step of looking not only to serifs and sans serifs, but to script typefaces for inspiration, it could do a lot more.
The font is priced at $199 and is unique, especially around the italics.
