Elysium type ISO Mono Space Professional Font for programming
This is a classic sans serif pixel perfect coding font specific for programming. Its natural style is an upgrade reinterpretation, inspired by the Elysium film hex font that improves programming qualities. As a fusion with ISO3098b ISO norm standard monospace font as far evolution from the Australian designer. This font 2015 has a new design with improvements form the 2013 and 2014 edition.
° Different shapes between 1lI| = " 1lI| "
so number 1 , “l” letter , capital “I” and separator “ |”are different and recognizable.
° It is a much thicker font with elliptical corners and no rounded edges radius type.
° It was built thinking to be pixel perfect display used, fitting in few pixels.
° It can be stretched from very small sizes: 4 pixel perfect up to big high definition anti-aliased sharp edges with nicer post script curves.
° Digital number 0 is different from letter O.
° It is also narrow and tall, with small space around, so is condensed in coding conditions similar to a Calibri font.
° It is thought to be used with transparent dark background conditions and font in a light white color and small contrast. Normally in this conditions all the traditional fonts look thinner. This font is thicker (heavier by default). So in normal conditions (paper white, black font) it will look a bit bold.
° It is a Monospace font so it is better for programming and nicer in alignments. I personally use it with Mono, ConTEXT editor giving me nice results for searching and finding errors.
At the moment there is no Italic. I don't think I will do the Italic version of it (in most programs the italic is made automatically so it´s not a real issue). If you need Italic or variants of it as for example an ultra light version or adding characters, I can make customs versions and it will be charged extra for the work.
