Difference Between A Typeface And A Font

the mp3 is the delivery mechanism. The song is the creative work

the font is the delivery mechanism or file, the typeface is the creative work

See AKKURAT or a muad font.

Monospace & Proportional Fonts

Monospace Font: Each character will occupy the same space if you we’re to see a box around each character and space between them.
Proportional Font: Each character will occupy a different space

It is important to remember that many devices are available to make layouts exciting.
The purpose of the grid is to provide consistency to the layouts, but not necessarily excitement — which will be provided by the sum of all the elements in the design.
