New from insigne: Marintas

Marintas is a sleek upright italic that offers you a modern look and feel. This elegant sans serif comes across as lively, yet comfortable. Some semi slab characteristics of the font give it a face-forward momentum. These semi slabs, even with their geometric construction, are fluid shapes with a soft hint of brushstroke. The soft curves of Marintas paired with its playful but geometric semi slabs or ending strokes give the face its spirited--though friendly--eye-catching appearance.


The Marintas family is comprised of 8 variants, ranging from Thin to Ultra. Its incredible versatility ranges from the delicate hairline to the extreme ultra weight. The heavier weights show some similarity to Antique Olive, and the face has an exuberant South American or Latin feel. This type family is well-suited for advertising, retail, food and beverage products as well as for use in magazines, logotypes, and books. The fonts lend themselves to display settings, but are still very usable for longer copy. Because of its large x-height, the typeface is legible at very small sizes and as a webfont.



Marintas has support for extended Latin character set. A wide range of Western languages are also supported, including Central, Eastern and Western European languages. In all, Marintas supports over 40 languages that use the extended Latin script, making Marintas a great choice for multi-lingual publications and packaging.




All insigne fonts are fully loaded with OpenType features. Marintas is also equipped for complex professional typography and includes ligatures, alternate characters and fractions. The face includes a number of numeral sets, including old-style and lining figures with superiors and inferiors. OpenType-savvy applications such as Quark or the Adobe Creative 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. Check out the informative .pdf brochure to see these features in action.

Grenale, a haute couture sans-serif.

The elegant Grenale brings a new look to the classic didone. This shimmering sans-serif family with its mild deco shades alters the typical serifs and terminals of the classic style to form a gracefully eye-catching, high-contrast font.

While high-contrast, sans serif forms tend to disappear in the copy, Grenale’s meticulously designed features exhibit proper balance in the spacing and in the thorough improvements of its contours. The rigorous consideration given these details leaves a delicate typeface that doesn’t get washed out in certain applications. Its pure, polished, geometric structure has a glamorous sensitivity, drawing heavily from the inspiration of the haute couture influence.

Grenale’s thin weights are simple but vibrant--elegant forms that naturally lend themselves to high fashion journals, high-end branding, and other five star applications. With added energy and power, the thicker weights with their ink traps and optical compensation intensify the gravitas for a state…

Top Tips for using Chromatic Typefaces or Layered Fonts

Using Layered or Chromatic Type Have you seen those fancy new layered type styles that all the cool kids are using? Ever wonder how to use them most efficiently? Layered type is great when you want to set headlines in a application that screams for attention. It's fantastic when you want a retro or vintage feel or just want to add some depth and dimension to your work.

A Bit of History If you will forgive the pun, layered type is a multifaceted contemporary trend in type design. Layered type finds it's origins in woodtype, which came to the fore in the mid 1800s. Another implementation came in the time of Letraset. In the present day, we stack layers of type in a digital program and output the results, but in the past there was great deal of trial and error and less versatility.
