Plau presents Odisseia, a monospace type family in 8 styles designed with simplicity of shapes and a humanist touch.
We’ve ventured into monospace territory, where all letters must occupy the same amount of space. This style is usually associated with typewriters and computer terminal fonts.
When used in text, monospaced typefaces end up creating a matrix - all letters seemingly attached to a grid. The rhythm created is peculiar, since large letters such as m and w occupy the same space as narrow ones like i. Because we have 4 different weights: light, regular, bold and black the design of the characters have to be adapted to fit the same width and achieve a constant light/dark value throughout.
These features make Odisseia suitable for a specific yet considerable range of uses, from computer coding to communication systems such as brand identities.
This style has been used from high-end brand identity to cutting edge digital applications.
We invite you to join the mission, license Odisseia and put it to the fullest possible use, which is all a font can ever hope to do.
