Can you give us a short description about your font?
I started working on this font as a personal project in 2001 to create a running text font. In 2002, I adapted the font to a single-spaced font for the index of dgv’s bestseller Los Logos and called it T-Star Mono Round. I rounded the corners to give it more character in big sizes but keeping its legiblity in small for the index. The basic form of the T-Star Mono Round is simple, open and it features several extra characters including those for the web, clients and credits and works especially well in small font sizes.
What is the ideal usage of your font?
T-Star Mono can be used for headlines, posters and short texts.
Where does the name come from?
The letter “T” defines the horizontal and vertical proportions; the basic structure for a typeface and it’s the simplest letter and recognizable sign. Star because it was my first “text” font that I’ve developed and it just felt like a STAR.
Do you think that too many fonts exist?
