Native is a monospace family built with designers and developers in mind. The typeface seeks to strike a balance between personality and usability. Native’s charm can come out in the tail of the “a” or the flow the italic “r,” but it still retains readability without its quirks becoming overbearing. Native’s counters were kept open in order to aid legibility at smaller sizes, and the italics were given their fair share of differentiation to bring emphasis for items such as a comment in a line of code.
Native’s weights and italics all occupy the same amount of horizontal space so no alignment issues will occur when switching between styles. The Regular weight is free of charge for all types of licenses.
