About

Signal Mono is the fixed-width version of Signal. Signal Mono extends the voice of Signal, only with a more technological vibe. It is a deep dive into the initial concept of a straightforward bureaucratic typeface, that would be well-suited for plain, no-nonsense typesettings. Serious and technical, Signal Mono colorizes words and turns them into rigorous elements of monospaced language. As a piece of industrial design, Signal Mono performs better for data visualization, timetables, numbered lists, and other documents where the numerical information counts. Signal leans on a significant part of the French typographic landscape: Caractères, the typeface found on road signs throughout France. Signal’s aesthetic is inextricably bound up with administrative design. The letters conform to the rigor that suffused most sans serifs of the second half of the twentieth century. An epitome of late-modernist thinking, Signal has a bespoke appearance and a distinctive typographic color (see especially the unconventional spacing of the italic cuts).
