After my son was born, I found myself reading him a lot of books. A LOT of books.
Say g'day to Ainslie Sans, insigne Design’s new typeface. Like its big brother, the new face incorporates a mix of influences from Oz, although Sans is pared down from the original semi-serif.
insigne returns to Aviano’s classically inspired forms with this sans serif variant. Wide and geometric, Aviano Sans is perfect for any job that calls for a chic and dignified sans serif as seen in this demonstration video. Aviano Sans has consistently topped insigne’s best-seller chart for more than seven years, earning its stripes as an expressive and versatile typeface that belongs in any designer’s tool chest.
Get your Aussie on! The new typeface, Ainslie, with its mix of influences from Oz, makes its mark as the first semi-serif from insigne Design.
The contemporary feel of the Sancoale superfamily takes a bolder turn with this futuristic slab. Built from Sancoale’s successfully simple geometry, Slab’s serif elements and tall x-height give the face an energetic, yet clean figure that easily complements its cousins: Sancoale Softened--a sans with blunted terminals; Sancoale Narrow; and, of course, the original Sancoale itself. The weights of each member have been balanced carefully to ensure compatibility with the others, and when used together, the combination creates a powerful design that is easy to identify.
The elegant Grenale brings a new look to the classic didone. This shimmering sans-serif family with
its mild deco shades alters the typical serifs and terminals of the classic style to form a gracefully eye-catching, high-contrast font.
The rounded forms found in Chennai have proven to be one of insigne’s more popular designs for web-based company logotypes. Now, insigne’s new superfamily Madurai takes its popular predecessor to a new level, offering a wide range of complementary fonts. Madurai removes Chennai’s rounded stems and then adjusts the character width to account for its reduction in geometry, resulting in a balanced sans-serif face with humanist touches that works well for extended text.
I love geometric sans serifs, their crispness and rationality. Le Havre taps into this style, but for a while, I've wanted to create a font recalling the printed Futura of the 1940s, which seems to have an elusive quality all its own. After seeing an old manual on a World War II ship, I developed a plan for “Le Havre Metal” but chose to shelve the project due to Le Havre’s small x-height. That’s where Steagal comes in.
Firm and resolute, the sharp, triangular wedge serifs of the new Aviano Wedge stamps your copy with the confidence of late 19th century luxury, wealth, and power. Indicative of banknotes and financial strength, the large, elegant Aviano Wedge is composed in the Latin style. Aviano Wedge takes its original footing from period signage found on a building in Asheville, NC. While shaped largely by engraved faces, the elegant Aviano Wedge maintains the extra-wide comfort and ease found with the rest of the Aviano series.
Sancoale Narrow is a carefully honed and meticulously crafted new family member for the Sancoale series. Sancoale Narrow has been specially designed to allow for even more versatility for the Sancoale Family. Sancoale Narrow continues with Sancoale’s successful simple, geometric and legible structure. It is a contemporary design that is distinctive and unique. This new narrow addition can be used in conjunction with the original Sancoale, but it can also stand on its own.
The Le Havre series is a series of geometric sans serifs inspired by the dignified era of the passenger ship, when getting to your destination was a delight in and of itself.
Chennai Slab is an extension of the original Chennai.
Chennai Slab is a simplified slab serif with over sixty OpenType alternates. These alternates include alternates for the ball terminals, unique simplified alternates and more traditional capital forms. Use Chennai Slab when you need a fun and versatile slab serif.
Aviano slab is an extended slab serif and the newest member of the popular insigne series Aviano.
The same classically proportioned letterforms are now available in a slab serif variant for powerful impact.
This best selling series has now been extended to include a new member, Blue Goblet Drawn. Blue Goblet is hand-drawn by the artist, Cory Godbey, and is organic, charming and exuberant. Characters bounce and dance above and below the baseline and x-height, making this a whimsical and fun script.
Lourdes is an informal script font drawn with quick, thick brush strokes. The script appears to be quickly dashed down, and the characters were carefully designed to create a subtle rhythm. The strokes are slightly muted to avoid an overly aggressive appearance.
Sancoale is a new sans serif that is simple and geometric. It is a contemporary design that is distinctive and unique, but not too far outside the box. This makes for a typeface family that is very useful for many applications. The design is simplified without stems or spurs in the default character set. The OpenType alternates do include alternates with stems, and there are six weights with true italics. Please see the informative .pdf brochure to see these features in action.
The Aviano series returns, refined and sophisticated with an extended, high-contrast sans-serif family. Aviano Contrast is a contemporary typeface radiating with luxury. It’s classic elegance makes it perfect for high-end applications such as cosmetic, jewelry or fashion brands.
Natalya Monoline is the rounded monolinear companion to Natalya.
Like its predecessor, Natalya Monoline has a smooth rhythm and flows fluidly, due in no small part to its reliance on the golden spiral for its ornate swirls. This makes for an especially harmonious script with timeless appeal.
Originally a conceptual approach from the Chatype project of Jeremy Dooley and Robbie de Villiers, Quatie has been restructured to add a new industrial element to Insigne’s offerings. Like the Official Font of Chattanooga, Tennessee, Quatie definitely carries a contemporary, hipster feel. Quatie similarly draws much of its inspiration from the industrial brawn of the railroad and the unique characteristics of Cherokee letterforms, giving it an atypical form not usually found in an industrial slab.
Youngblood is a non-connected formal script with tall, sweeping ascenders and two alternates. These alternate forms can be mixed and matched for a custom look, and Youngblood is stronger in weight and is better suited for display work than most script fonts.
