Space Grotesk 2.0
Space Grotesk is a proportional sans-serif typeface variant based on Colophon Foundry's fixed-width Space Mono family (2016). Originally designed by Florian Karsten in 2018, Space Grotesk retains the monospace's idiosyncratic details while optimizing for improved readability at non-display sizes.
Space Grotesk includes Latin Vietnamese, Pinyin, and all Western, Central, and South-Eastern European language support, as well as several OpenType features (old-style and tabular figures, superscript and subscript numerals, fractions, stylistic alternates).
Building the Fonts
Family is built using fontmake and gftools post processing script. Tools are all python based.
To install all the Python tools into a virtualenv, do the following:
python3 -m venv venv source venv/bin/activate pip install -r requirements.txt
Then run the build script in the terminal:
cd sources sh build.sh
Space Grotesk is licensed under the SIL Open Font License v1.1, see OFL.txt for details.
