Which Monospace fonts pair well with Seravek ExtraLight?
My personal case
Seravek has restrained shapes and medium width.
However, most popular monospace fonts (Courier New, Menlo, etc) are too wide or/and too exaggerative. So I need a monospace font that is neither too wide nor too exaggerative; fitting the temperament of Seravek.
I was using Seravek Light in my blog; Inconsolata integrated fine with it. Now Iâ€™m considering to use Seravek ExtraLight instead, but confused by the monospace-font issue.
To be general
Although my personal case is to find one to work as inline pieces of code in articles, please make your answer general for other usages, e.g. headlines, outdoors, advertising, package design, etc.
Using Courier as the basis for comparison, the criteria were:
- less wide than Courier
- less exaggerated (more constrained) than Courier
Based on this criteria, I would suggest experimenting with the following monospace fonts:
Has a nice high x-height with a bit of a condensed look and a few different cuts to use.
A bit less condensed than Ubuntu, but with double the number of cuts, and a relatively contemporary look for a monospace
A monospace that tries to look like a regular font, bit older, but still a goody
This is one of my personal favorites. It barely resembles a monospace, but it is, which by all functional purposes is amazing.
Hopefully you'll be able to find a resource here that can help you out. All the best!
