... recommendations for monospaced block sans-serif typefaces with full cyrillic alphabet...?

Hi all *wave*

Just poking around for a monospaced block sans-serif typeface that has full support for the cyrillic alphabet... Any suggestions or direction shoving would be deeply appreciated :)

What do you mean by block sans-serif? And by full support of Cyrillic are you looking at extended Cyrillic or just the basic stuff for say Russian?

Hi sii, thanks for the fast response!

By block sans-serif I was thinking of something akin to "Why Square" from Linotype (http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/linotype/why-square-lt/) - I couldn't quite think of the best way to describe it!

I would need extended Cyrillic /ideally/ but I can live with just the basic alphabet

Thanks again :)

I think you'll have a hard time finding a monospaced designs in that style, especially ones including Cyrillic. I can't think that many people would consider making one. You might be better off finding a proportionally spaced font that allows modifications and adjusting the widths yourself. Come tho think of it, why do you need monospaced?

ParaType has a Bank Gothic with Cyrillic, among others.
CastleType made a version of Agency that (probably) has the language support you need.

Oops, forgot about the monospaced. Maybe because ‘Why Square’ isn’t monospaced either? Sorry.

Both Why Square and Just Square (by the same designer) have Cyrillic versions available! Just follow these links and scroll down to the bottom of the pages to see them:

Dan, this doesn't appear to be monospaced. The i and l don't seem wide enough.

No, they aren't monospaced. But they are sort of like what Guy was looking for and with Cyrillic otherwise…

Thank you for the great suggestions [and I think I can live without the monospacing] so will definitely try out Bank Gothic, Agency and the "Squares" but will have a good ol' think before committing!

Really appreciate the help! :D
