Monopol is a bold and heavy display typeface intended to be used for strong headlines and poster design in general. Its lack of lower-case characters indicates clearly that this typeface wants to be used to state strong statements. Characters which do usually feature sharp angles such as the A, M, N, V, W are drawn in two ways. One version expresses these sharp angles explicitly and gives the impression of a strong modular quality, while the other version is bit more toned down. Characters like the S as well as many of the figures can also be understood to be reminiscent of typical wordmarks from the 80s.
