Free Font Friday: Supply Mono
Supply Mono by Mathieu Desjardins is a stylish, minimal, and mono-space computer style font. The font is sharp and precise and has a visual edge that makes it appropriate for high-end design applications. Supply Mono would look smart in a portfolio of Brutalist architecture projects or minimalist geometric sculptures.
It’s a perfectly reductive elegant choice for paragraph type and captions. It also works well writ large, especially with ample letter-spacing and in the lightest version. You can also use it as any mono-space computer font, for writing code.
What makes Supply Mono stand out as an elegant choice is the use of some curves and rounded elements in the font design — this makes the design appear less boxy and clunky compared to some other mono-space fonts. The font comes in five weights making it versatile for a range of projects.
Supply Mono is free for Personal Use. Commercial licenses can also be purchased at their website.
