Most new fonts are designed to fulfill a specific business purpose or evoke a specific mood. With an efficient series of montages, Hoefler shows off Operator’s versatility for everything from programming code to composing love letters in the release video here.
Unlike a traditional monospaced face H&co relax the system, to create a font that feels monospaced, but behaves more professionally in text settings.
With designers, developers, and readers in mind, H&co created. Operator Mono a family of fixed-width typefaces, with a broader range of weights than a typical typewriter face, and an italic that positively shines in code. Its more editorial companion is the natural-width Operator family, which offers the voice of typewriting but none of the compromises (and clunky spacing!)... Operator extends to nine weights, from Thin to Ultra, and includes both roman and italic small caps throughout. Both families are supported by companion ScreenSmart fonts, specially designed and engineered for use in the browser at text sizes.
