TT Autonomous Mono
Technological monospaced subfamily
The idea was born in Amsterdam when one of our colleagues took the official electric taxi at the Schiphol airport. At the moment we were thinking about creating a new wide sans-serif, and an interesting question emerged during the trip: what font would be associated with autonomous electric transport. Then we thought it would also be nice to expand this theme visually. The basic visual characteristic of the typeface is the noticeable squareness of the characters and angular internal space.
TT Autonomous has variable versions for both the basic and the monospaced subfamilies.
14 regular styles, 6 monospaced styles, 7 reversed styles, 2 outline styles and 3 variable fonts

This is how the font family TT Autonomous came about. It is a modern brutal technological sans-serif. The basic visual characteristic of the font family is the noticeable squareness of the characters and angular internal space.
We could not disregard the fact that code lines in software for autonomous cars are traditionally typed using monospaced fonts and added a special monospaced subfamily to the TT Autonomous typeface. Thanks to the squareness of the characters inherited from the main family and the real monospace properties, the character forms in the subfamily turned out very specific and interesting. This is especially true for oblique monospaced fonts, which are true italics.
As from the very beginning the font was developed with tomorrow’s technologies in mind, we could not miss addressing variability and creating a variable font. TT Autonomous Mono has variable version.
TT Autonomous Mono includes 3 weights (Regular, Meduim, Bold) and 3 matching italics. The number of glyphs more than 630.
For the most demanding users, we have prepared a variable version of basic styles. Using the variability slider, you can adjust and select the individual thickness, without reference to the existing weight distribution. An important clarification—not all programs support variable technologies yet, you can check the support status here: https://v-fonts.com/support/.
TT Interphases Mono is a complementary family of 4 styles—2 upright and 2 oblique.
TT Geekette is an experimental variable serif with friendly and flexible character of shapes.
