Courier is one of the most well-recognized typefaces in the world. Everyone recognizes it as the face originally designed for use on typewriters. A typical characteristic of older typewriters is that all characters are given the same amount of space regardless of their width. Hence, an i receives just as much room as an m, even though it is much thinner. This principle defined the look of Courier. A line in this typeface has “holes” in what would otherwise be a homogenous look. Due to its origins, Courier is associated with office and telegram-like text.
