Aglet Mono

Round architecture informs Aglet Mono, tempering its rigorous, fixed-width rhythm. Clever strategies offset the lopsided spatial artifacts produced by a monospaced design: the dented sides of A, V, W, v, and w compensate for the absence of kerning. Extroverted f, j, r, and t fill their allotted space with curious hooks, and a brazen g supports the calculated weirdness of some of the other glyphs.

Aglet Mono includes a set of useful symbols and comes in fourteen styles, like its relatives Aglet Slab and Aglet Sans. Minimal Extra Light resembles a wireframe of the characters, and the vocabulary of shapes grows increasingly diverse as the weights approach the bulky embrace of Ultra.

A display face at heart, Aglet Mono also translates well to the more intimate, routine demands of code. Its atmosphere is distinctly industrial and technical, but also unstudied and ad hoc. Aglet Mono is a typeface for people who make stuff, whether headlines or software.

Type Designer

XYZ Type

Ben Kiel and Jesse Ragan make useful, quietly offbeat fonts at their independent digital foundry, XYZ Type, which operates in the interwebs between St. Louis and New York. After hiring each other back and forth and realizing they worked well together, the pair launched XYZ Type in 2017 to merge their respective strengths and extensive experience crafting typefaces and lettering for major brands, cultural institutions, and publications.

Their custom and retail projects mutually reinforce one another—some begin life as client commissions, while others are speculative designs that Ben and Jesse believe fill a commercial niche. XYZ Type draws original typefaces and logotypes from scratch, customizes versions of their retail typefaces to tailor them to a client’s specific needs, and fine-tunes client logotype sketches. They thrive on collaboration with people who are as fired up about type as they are.

Energized by history, vernacular lettering, and unorthodox graphic design practice, Ben and Jesse chase new ideas for typefaces that are as clever as they are technologically robust. Their meticulous development process often takes surprising twists and turns, arriving at small but significant moments of discovery that mark XYZ Type’s designs as uniquely theirs.
