Betafont Type Family

Betafont was commissioned by Franklyn for the Betaworks rebrand. The geometric type family takes inspiration from Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine.

The Franklyn team created a prototype of the thin weight, which I refined as I added two heavier weights. Betafont is full of optical adjustments. These details keep the heavier styles legible at small sizes and also preserve the circular appearance of many letters.

Betafont references typewriter letters and monospaced fonts for programming, but the typeface itself is not monospaced. This allows it to read more like a traditional text face even though it doesn’t look like one.
