Drive Prop

Drive Prop

by Black[Foundry]

Black[Foundry] created Drive Prop because monospaced typefaces are often hard to read in long form, so they developed a proportional version of their Drive Mono font, tuned for running text.

The Drive family is designed by Black[Foundry]’s Elliott Amblard and Jérémie Hornus. Drive Prop is a humanist sans, optimised for use in print and on screen. Its letterforms have open counters, helping text remain clear – even under adverse reading conditions. Its characters are drawn with virtually-monolinear strokes. The family includes nine different weights from Hairline through Extrabold with corresponding upright and italic fonts.
