Greta Mono Condensed

Design concept

Greta fonts are calligraphic in structure, and constraining their letters to a uniform space is challenging. Greta Mono Condensed doesn’t use monoline construction, but a higher stroke contrast. To make it appear uniform, most of letter stems are non-uniform, optically adjusted to create an even texture throughout a block of text.

International Typography

Typotheque OpenType Pro fonts support all European languages, covering Latin-based (Western, Central and Eastern European, Baltic, Turkish, Vietnamese), Cyrillic-based, and Greek-based languages. Such large multilingual fonts are sometimes referred to as Pan-European or WGL4 fonts.

10 weights & two widths

Most digital monospaced fonts come with two weights, regular and bold, because making a monospaced font family gets more complicated as the number of weights grows. Design of the lightest style i in Hairline needs to occupy the same width as the heaviest style m in Black. Greta Mono, has an astonishing ten weights and two widths that offer a broad palette of typographical possibilities.

No Pitch

Greta Mono breaks the traditional ‘pitch’ system (number of glyphs per inch in a specific point size), because Greta fits 10 extremely different weights into the same fixed space. Therefore, when you change from Courier to Greta Mono, the text will reflow, as Greta Mono has its own defined glyph width.
