    Not feeling the lowercase g.

      Important to mention this is text version of Space Mono by Colophon. Another open-source typeface. Actually one commisioned by Google for their Google Fonts collection. https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Space+Mono

      The lowercase g is one of the prominent characteristics. The Space Grotesk tries to stay true to the Space Mono but it is very different typeface. Most of it is completely redrawn.

        Yeah I appreciate the lowercase g is one of the fonts standout characteristics and is designed like that for a reason, it just instantly irritated me.

      Actually, there is major update coming in few days. It includes some significantly redrawn characters (including more conventional lowercase g) and also a bunch of new stylistic alternates, which will make the overall appearance a bit closer to Space Mono (mostly more pronounced ink traps, "that" lowercase g, and also "that" uppercase R :)

    I like and tried this font. Actual shapes, IMHO. Surprised to see the announcement so lately. Are you planning to add cyrillic extension?

      The typeface just got new name. It used to be called Space Text which we later found out was very hard to find for people. So this is just more refined version with different name.

      I am not sure what you mean by "actual shapes, imho"?

      There are no plans for cyrillic extensions but contributors are welcome. It might happen if client who payed for creation of Space Grotesk will want cyrillic.
