iA Writer Presents Duospace – A Better Font Option For Writing Drafts

iA, the Zurich-based team, has just revealed their new duospaced font to include in their app.

iA Writer is a mobile app, compatible with mobile and macOS, created by iA team in order to bring new font options for its users who frequently write articles, blog posts, letters, stories and so on.

After creating the monospaced font Nitti, which fits each character the same amount of horizontal space; the iA team now launched their newly created font Duospace, which allows writers to use a better font to increase the legibility in the texts they create.

As the team have explained, the font gives 50% more space to the letters m, M, w and W. What is more, writer will be able to scan through words and letters at their preferred pace.

If you want to see the difference between Nitti and Duospace, check the example below:


Want to give Duospace a try? You can now download it from iA Writer for macOS and iOS or GitHub.

Based mostly on iA’s announcement, giving 50% more space to the letters fixes the issue of squishing those historically extensive letters into awkward spaces, while creating a much more better flow and also keeping the entire advantages of monospaced fonts: “the draft like look, the discernibility of words and letters, and the right pace for writing.”


iA Writer Duospace is built on Plex, which is the new corporate typeface of IBM – they both are available for download, for free.

Since we also went over the idea behind the need of a new typeface for IBM a couple of weeks ago, it’s pretty obvious that both typefaces, Plex and Duospace carry the same aim at first stage; bringing a new legible font in long and dense text into the visual world.
