Monolisk is a rigid, gothic typeface that draws on inspiration from Eastmodern and Brutalist architecture. Its monolithic glyphs, resolute and unapologetic in their construction, create a visually striking design that feels bold and arresting. Monolisk delivers a dominant sense of uniformity, to the point of obstinance, while small facets of its make up help to create an undertone of rebellion and dissent, allowing for an element of quirk and personality.

Available in 5 weights, each with a corresponding oblique, Monolisk comes equipped with over 700 characters across a variety of languages. A large set of stylistic alternate glyphs give Monolisk further diversity of character all of which retain its sturdy and powerful nature. Other open type features include a set of vertically stacked fractions, small caps and ligatures.

From sports branding to propaganda posters, Monolisk delivers the impact your designs require.
