New from insigne: Foverdis!







Foverdis is a versatile and powerful ornate script face. Foverdis features flowing hand lettering with tall and graceful ascenders. The face offers a wide array of weights, from the powerful Black weight to the graceful Thin to unique hairline. Foverdis can get the job done for many unique design tasks. Its wide range of weights at a great price, and OpenType alternates make it a very valuable font for your design toolbox.

Foverdis OpenType features include a set of non-connecting alternates, 20 ligatures, and two types of ending letterforms. OpenType features include ornaments, a full set of swashes, swash endings, ending contextual alternates, discretionary ligatures, ligatures and twelve different stylistic sets filled with alternates. In total, there are over 150 alternate letterforms and ornaments. Please see the sample .pdf to see these features in action.

OpenType capable applications such as Quark or the Adobe suite can take full advantage of the automatically replacing ligatures and alternates. This family also includes the glyphs to support a wide range of languages. Foverdis is great for a professional designer that wants to maximize design capabilities.
