Download Aidos typeface
Aidos typeface is a typewriter font family that has a special feature. It´s a monospaced-style font that is actually multi-spaced or semi-proportional. All glyphs are arranged in groups according to the width of the basic letter form. As a result the design has the typical typewriter aesthetics without having all the drawbacks of the monospaced concept. One benefit is that it is somewhat less space consuming, so Aidos is a good choice for user interface elements and responsive web designs. Also texts set with Aidos are far more regular and homogeneous than with common monospaced fonts.
Aidos changes its character with increasing weight. The fonts have sharp, triangular serifs, that gain momentum as the weight grows. The serifs change their look from the typical slab-like typewriter form to strong triangular extremities, giving the font a strong standing and a lot of character. The heavier weights gain headline quality, showing detail that attracts attention and makes Aidos a great choice for a wide range of uses.
The family is well equipped for todays typographic needs, including the most commonly used OpenType features like lining figures, ordinals, superior numbers and fractions. It also has an extended character set containing 530 glyphs supporting Eastern European languages as well as Central- and Western European languages. Additionally it contains many symbols. The spacing of the letters was adjusted with a lot of care, preventing language-typical spacing issues. Extensive testing in all common European languages leads to a comfortable reading experience.
