Ainslie Sans is here. Give it a burl.

Say g'day to Ainslie Sans, insigne Design’s new typeface. Like its big brother, the new face incorporates a mix of influences from Oz, although Sans is pared down from the original semi-serif.

The original Ainslie was inspired by Mt. Ainslie and the city of Canberra’s inner suburb of the same name. Canberra is Australia’s capital--a planned city designed by American architect Walter Burley Griffin. Griffin’s style and geometric design for the city, which include Mt. Ainslie, are now also the same structure that make up the foundation of Ainslie Sans.

Unlike the original Ainslie family member, though, Ainslie Sans does away with much of the aboriginal-inspired touches by eliminating the semi-serifs, forcing the font to borrow more heavily than its predecessor from Canberra’s distinct, geometric design and style. The result’s a spiffy Australian font that’s usable within a wide array of applications.

The trendy typeface incorporates a multitude of alternates. You can access these in any OpenType-enabled application. Alternates, swashes and alternate titling caps allow you to customize the look and feel. Also incorporated are capital swash alternates, old style figures, and compact caps. Check out the PDF brochure to view these options in action. OpenType enabled applications can take complete benefit of your automatic replacing ligatures and alternates. This font also presents the glyphs to help a wide array of languages.

Try it for copy. Try it for a headline. Try it alongside the original Ainslie. Whichever way suits you best, give it a burl. You won’t be sad you did.

Introducing Celari Titling












Need for speed? Satisfy it with insigne’s Celari. Take it for a drive and watch how its simple curves, easy lines, and sturdy shapes handle the edges and corners of your projects with smooth and rapid execution. The negative space cuts through the rounded sans serif letterforms of Celari, giving this all-caps typeface a strong impression of dimension and speed. Celari’s organic stroke direction allows you to ease through its gentle turns, too, causing the font to hum around the lines of your project like a V8 engine on an open Nevada highway.
The speed and agility of Celari is built for nothing less than a headline. Use the larger-than-life power of this face for any number of oversized applications--mastheads, posters, web headlines, flyers. It provides excellent performance for service-oriented ads where efficiency and quick buyer service are priorities.
Customize your ride, too. The OpenType version of Celari includes some serious add-ons to make it your design. The font incorporates discretionary ligatures for some funky combinations and adds in stylistic and contextual alternates for virtually endless possibilities with the characters, ligatures, and composites. Make sure your setup allows for OpenType fonts (Adobe CS suite or Quark) before unleashing the fun of Celari, though
Be confident with your design. Be quick with your message. Take Celari for a drive and unleash the strength and velocity of its character in your design. You’ve been holding back long enough.
