mono to go
mono to go is our new typeface: grid-based, experimental, and with over 600 glyphs. The typeface was originally created for an exhibition and is now available on MyFonts.
When Erwin was invited by the artist Jun Yang in 2019 to develop a contribution for his solo show, the source of inspiration was his personal connection to the artist. Thus, the lettering “ra’mien to go” designed by Jun Yang became the starting point for the typeface “mono to go”, which was first used on a series of 3 silkscreen posters for the exhibition.
Ascenders and descenders on x-height build the mono to go develop over three storeys. The letters fit exactly on the regular circular grid and thus encourage the interlacing of lines. Especially for headlines, this can be used to create “typographic pictures”. Alternative characters for upper and lower case make the glyph set a construction kit.
Thanks to its modular concept, the typeface invites you to “build” individually combined word images. Depending on your preference for the type of composition, we have developed special Open Type features for this purpose.
– Stylistic alternatives for selected lowercase letters
– Shortened ascender and descender
