Font Discovery: Iosevka

January 20, 2022 by Steven Ng

Stumbled on an interesting font named Iosevka (Github repo is here), which looks like a nice coding/technical font.

There are multiple variants of the font, including slab serif versions. It's on the narrower side, especially when compared to Fira Code or IBM Plex (you can do a comparison on the Iosevka site).

In terms of usage, I can see this font being used for coding in an IDE, or tabular reporting where information density is paramount, especially when horizontal real estate is tight.
