New from insigne: Blue Goblet Florals

The designer-favorite Blue Goblet family has grown with the addition of Blue Goblet Florals. Blue Goblet Florals are flowing and abstract ornaments that resemble foliage or flowers rendered in Cory Godbey’s unique illustration style.

These fresh and lively foliage inspired ornaments can be resized easily without any loss of quality, and can easily be converted to outlines and modified. These floral ornaments can be combined to form unique compositions or inserted directly into layouts. Please see the sample .pdf to see all 55 floral ornaments in action, and be sure to check out the original Blue Goblet brush script and Blue Goblet ornaments, frames and vignettes.

Blue Goblet Florals is a collaboration between insigne Design and Portland Studios.

Woman Fired For Causing Disharmony in Workplace by Using Angry Fonts. Just don't do it, folks. Use happy fonts.

http://myfonts.de...sehr interessant. Inspired by this, I sent in a suggestion to Myfonts.com for "Find fonts by what's popular in your area.: MyFonts could use sales data for a specific region or country to generate a custom top 50 list for specific regions. Another possibility would to have “Find fonts by region” with a clickable map of the world. It would be very interesting and engaging for customers to contrast, say Germany with Minnesota, etc.

Some nice branding work over at Luxcetera. Plus they made some great type choices for their logotypes. :)
