Monospaced typefaces are among the common trends for blogs and websites this year. In recent years, there have been ongoing movements towards simplicity and minimalism. In fact, it became so popular that it has affected even the digital world. This includes website design, blogging, and even content creation. Not just that, monospaced typefaces are actually quite soothing for the eyes. In this font design, each character occupies the same amount of horizontal space. They are known as fixed-width and non-proportional.
