Aviano Serif in Thor

I was pleasantly surprised to see Aviano Serif in the Thor end credits. There is a very cool space flyby that ends with Aviano Serif, just before the Post-End Credit Teaser. Screenshots below.


Thor in Aviano Serif.

Too bad they didn't use it for the posters. I want to expand my "Movie posters featuring Aviano" collection.

The movie was surprisingly good; the teasers looked pretty stupid, but I wanted to see this after watching Captain America. 3.75/5 stars

New from insigne: Pauline Didone

An Art Deco and script inspired typeface for “modern” times, Pauline Didone is a full type family with a unique and flavorful design. It has a sense of femininity and naïveté that comes from its predecessor, Pauline. It’s a typeface useful for short bits of copy, logotypes and interesting titling. This typeface family of 10 different fonts includes 5 weights and their italics and a wide range of OpenType alternates.

The original Pauline was inspired by and has a strong influence from retro scripts. The typeface is geometric, formed with deliberate contrasting brush strokes and a ostentatious flair. Pauline Didone's high contrast strokes give it a very interesting look that is up to date with latest design trends and very useful for today's design environment. Pauline Didone pairs nicely with the original sans-serif Pauline.

The typeface family also includes a full array of alternate forms, including over 150 alternate characters. These alternates can be accessed by activating OpenType features and style sets.   In order to use these features, you will need a program with advanced typography capabilities such as the Adobe Suite or Quark. These alternates also include a group of ball terminals that can be accessed under the swash alternates.

Pauline Didone is the latest in a trusted line of typefaces from insigne. Why settle for the ordinary when you can choose Pauline Didone to lend its unique look to your art work?
