New from insigne: Cavole









Cavole Slab is a new slab serif, designed in early 2011, that has a strong influence from Dutch typography. The name is an altered form of the Portuguese word for feather, emphasizing the typeface’s soft and friendly character. Slab serifs give this face plenty of impact and make it an excellent choice for contemporary designers. The font family includes a very dark and powerful black all the way down to a hairline thin weight, giving a tremendous versatility. The family also features dynamic italics that add plenty of emphasis and momentum.
Cavole Slab is suitable for both headline and text settings and should easily find its place in a number of different settings, from corporate identity to magazine body copy.
There are six weights that come with complementary italics, and each font includes over 450 characters and extended Latin-based language support. The typeface family comes in OpenType format, and OpenType alternates are easily accessible through OpenType enabled applications such as the Adobe suite or Quark. Please see the informative .pdf brochure to see what OpenType features are available and to see them in action.

Sancoale featured in MyFonts Rising Stars newsletter

I was pleasantly surprised to see Sancoale made it into the Rising Stars newsletter. Sancoale is available for a limited time for 20 percent off. This won't last long, so grab it while its hot.

Pauline was also mentioned later in the article. I track my font statistics and Pauline unexpectedly moved up to be the one of my most popular font families. Not bad for a font released in 2008.
