Whip something up with Between and win a year of free fonts

Show us how you’ve used Between and win a free year of the Monotype Library Subscription with unlimited access to thousands of fonts! Simply share your work on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #MeetBetween to be entered to win.

If you haven’t tried Between, it’s a typeface with an unusual sense of self. Akira Kobayashi’s design works more like a balanced recipe than a conventional font family in which three distinct design ingredients combine to create different typographic flavours and outcomes.

Whether it’s the technical, modern character of Between 1, or the lively and organic personality of Between 3, each part of the typeface works in harmony. While sharing the same cap height and x height, the styles imbue individual characters with subtle quirks – adding some unexpected spice to the typographic recipe.
