Hoefler & Co has unveiled a new font called Operator, which the company said is aimed at helping programmers with coding.

The monospace typeface font pays attention to the brackets, braces, and punctuation marks more critical in code than in text.

Operator further renders the easily-confused I, l, and 1 far less ambiguous, and helps “colour” syntax in a way that transcends the actual use of colour – ensuring that different parts of a program are easier to identify.

“In developing Operator, we found ourselves talking about JavaScript and CSS, looking for vinyl label embossers on eBay, and renting a cantankerous old machine from perhaps the last typewriter repair shop in New York,” Hoefler & Co. said.

More information about the Operator font is available in the video from Hoefler & Co.
