Font Collection: 10 Free Excellent Monospaced Fonts
Monospaced fonts, which are fonts whose characters have equal horizontal widths, are suitable for programming because they make source code easier to read. However, they’re not a designer’s go-to when picking out typefaces for designs because they’re created with functionality, rather than aesthetic appeal, as a priority. Although, some monospaced fonts do look great, and I hope in this collection you’ll find some that you can use in design projects.
