We are excited to introduce a new type foundry on Webtype, all the way from Norway. Monokrom joins Webtype with their full typeface catalog all at once — five small, well-considered families, all with a certain nordic touch.

Here is Mønster, designed by Sindre Bremnes. This typeface has a playful sense of power — sharp teeth but a friendly smile. Unleash it.
Mønster has a few choice alternate characters. For example, Stylistic Set 1 (SS01) removes the bottom left serif from each h, k and l when they follow an a, which you can see above.

Faunus, designed by Sindre Bremnes, started as a display cut to Satyr but evolved in a slightly different direction with different detailing. The two still make a perfect pair. We recommend using Faunus in a medium or large size in short texts, editorial design or display settings. Satyr is a text face for reading sizes. The italic is especially engaging. Its hearty flavor lets Satyr stand out as a solitary typeface on a lucid website. Nonetheless, you can also combine it with a clear sans-serif such as Aften Screen, Solitaire or Freight Sans.

Telefon is the “revival” in the current Monokrom catalog. The lettering of the word TELEFON on old Norwegian phone booths gave Sindre Bremnes the idea for a geometric typeface. He incorporated the “low waist” of the capitals and spiky vertices of his model into his design, but all other characters are drawn from scratch to fit the style of constructed letterforms from the 1930s.
It also comes with a blintz of Opentype features!
