About Solitas Font Family
You request perfection--that ideal equilibrium of compact dimensions and geometric underpinnings that leaves you with pure, clean lines of a highly legible sans.
We give you Solitas, a 7-weight sans-serif from Jeremy Dooley. Made of 42 fonts, from the slender thin to the powerful bold and their matching italics, this typeface family features typographic options including ligatures, fractions, alternate unicase, upright italics, and titling caps. Coupled with its pure design and style, this makes Solitas a successful workhorse typeface.
The result of simplification and reduction, Solitas is well-suited for the headlines and shorter texts of promotions, packaging, editorials and branding, both in print and on your website.
That's it. It's that clean, that simple, and possibly that perfect for your next layout. Get it today.

“Type is very much like music,” says Jeremy Dooley. “It is linear, and the notes or phrases have to fit the theme or song.” Jeremy, owner of the one-man foundry, insigne, is a self-taught type designer and a true self-made success story.
His label is home to over a hundred font families, many of which have seen great success. Aviano has made our Best of the Year list not just once, but twice and has been featured in Hollywood blockbusters. You may have noticed various iterations of Aviano in Wall Street, Harry Potter, and Thor, and it was used for the branding of Robin Hood.
Jeremy considers type to be the foundation of advanced visual communication. One form of communication that the Chattanooga-based designer is drawn to is branding. In 2011, Jeremy, took on the enormous project of coming up with a typeface that would communicate the tone and feeling of his hometown; a font that would effectively brand the city. In 2013, the result, Chatype, was named the official typeface of Chattanooga TN. “Every city needs a brand,” he says, “as every city needs to highlight its own distinctive offerings.”
Like many designers, his creations are often the result of his interests. “I especially like seeing my typefaces in movies, on luxury packaging, and for technology companies,” he says. “These are interests of mine, and I often design fonts with those specific applications in mind. It’s very interesting to me that I frequently see fonts used in exactly the way I originally envisioned.”
Since he began selling his first font on MyFonts in 2004, the man who will tell anyone who asks, “I’m not really from anywhere,” has continuously drawn inspiration from his many experiences gained from living all over the globe.
