User, User Stencil and User Upright – Type Family.
A monospaced type family with 30 styles by Pedro Leal.
“User is a monospaced type family with 30 styles, from Hairline to Bold, divided in Regular, Upright and Stencil,with five weights (Hairline, ExtraLight, Light, Medium and Bold) all with Cameo versions. Complexity and versatility are the keywords for this type family. Despite being a monospaced font, which means there’s no kerning, all the glyphs were designed in order to sit comfortably in the 600 points width, a hard task because some glyphs are too narrow (‘i’ and ‘l’), while others are too wide (‘m’ and ‘w’), but they must fit the same width. The desire for keeping a comfortable readability in User was one of the key elements, therefore we designed several ligatures that fit both single and double space width, allowing to maintain a certain idea of proportional design.”
