New and updated fonts from Just Another Foundry and Insigne Design
We have a handful of new and updated fonts to announce today: two new typefaces from Just Another Foundry, as well as two new typefaces from Insigne Design and two updates (vertical metrics and rendering improvements) to existing Insigne faces.
Herb is a new kind of blackletter, described by Tim Ahrens of Just Another Foundry as, “a typeface that has the positive properties of blackletter but does not evoke the same negative connotations – a type that has the complex, humane character of fraktur without looking conservative, aggressive or intolerant.” Herb also comes in a condensed version.
JAF’s Peacock, a flexible display face with extensive OpenType features, is available as six separate fonts: Peacock, Peacock Alternate, Peacock Deep, Peacock Loop, Peacock Short, and Peacock Swash. Mix, match, and make the most of this melt-in-your-mouth marvel.
Insigne Design’s Eigerdals is, as designer Jeremy Dooley puts it, “a soft and amiable face, perfect for when you want to convey a relaxed and pleasant feeling.” Try this rounded sans for headlines and mood-setting copy.
Headlines set in Insigne’s Aviano Future, “a vigorous and futuristic sans serif,” can set a strong tone for themed experiences. Its sharp corners, mechanical angles, and speedy bends suggest speed, automation, and authority.
