Designed by Fred Smeijers


Monitor is a sans serif family originally designed by Fred Smeijers as a custom typeface for office use. Produced in 2000 in only two weights, normal and bold, the fonts had been manually hinted for an enhanced screen use.
Soon after its commercial release in 2002, numerous requests for additional weights have followed and in 2004 Smeijers expanded the family to seven weights, accompanying italics, and a new Condensed variant.
The third generation of Monitor fonts released in 2013, have gone through another substantial overhaul – a crisp and fully equipped sans serif family, has been extended to nine weights and a total of three widths. The result is a highly serviceable, no-nonsense design whose details mix precision with warmth in the spirit of Gill Sans and Fresco Sans. Monitor now emerges, fighting-fit, from the office into the wider world of intelligent typography.

Monitor fonts are now available in nine weights – Thin, Light, Normal, Medium, SemiBold, Bold, ExtraBold. Black and ExtraBlack – of roman and italic designs, and in three width variants – Normal, Semi-Condensed and Condensed. The character set includes small caps; lining, old style and small cap figures (each in tabular and proportional widths); fractions; comprehensive scientific superiors and inferiors, nominators and denominators; case sensitive punctuation sets; mathematical and monetary symbols (in tabular and proportional widths); arrows; standard and discretionary ligatures; sets of stylistic alternates; and a complete range of accents for all Western, Central and East European languages based on the Latin script.

Monitor fonts are available in OpenType PRO, TrueType, EOT and WOFF formats.
