Look, folks!

Look, folks! From what may just be the vernacular sign capital of the world, Chattanooga, Tennessee, it’s a brand new hyperfamily from insigne! Look includes three different related fonts, with three weights each. That’s over 70 fonts!


















Imagine: you turn onto a stretch of open country road. On the distressed, red background of an old barn wall, a large block of crisp white letters shout out: “See Rock City.” You soon realize this barn is not alone in competing for the passing eye. Far from it, ladies and gentlemen. This is just one of the many pieces of historic, hand-painted advertisements dotting the great Southern United States. Yes, these are the pieces of true Americana--the barns, the roadside signs, the machinery, the soda fountains, and more--that now inspire this splendid new set of three font families.


This new, easily readable type from insigne digs deep to capture the very heart and passion of this splendid country’s lettering of the post-war era. Look’s compact frame quickly draws the audience to your headline, logo, subheading, or pull quote, working well in those compact spots of text without overpowering your content. You’ll easily put the feeling of those days gone by into every piece with the natural beauty and simple usefulness of the Look hyperfamily.


Each of the individual sub-families incorporates a variety of font weights with distressed attributes. Think Woodtype. Jeans. Antiques, folks. That deep, ingrained texture--that quality that will stand the test of time.


And Look is flexible, too. Take, for example, Look Script. This powerhouse of a font offers thinner weights to give your work an easy-going, down-to-earth design. But bring in those heavier weights, and you’ll have a muscular, assertive font that will go the whole nine rounds.


Combine any of the Look families with Ornaments to really give your layouts a zing. Build an extraordinary design as well with Look's swashes and alternates. To activate any of these alternates, just click on Swash, Stylistic or Titling Alternates in any OpenType-savvy application, or choose from the Glyph Palette. Explore hundreds of included extras to find that “cherry on top” for your one-of-a-kind project.


There are over 70 fonts to choose from, including subfamily sans, serif, script and ornament fonts! You can’t go wrong. To get the most bang for your buck, order the whole Look family now!

Note on SHADOWS: Increase depth and make your designs pop! Add shadows to any of the Look fonts by duplicating the text content layer in place and switching it to its corresponding shadow. Color and offset to taste. Look shadows are offset automatically. In Illustrator, you may need to turn on Em Box Top for proper shadow alignment.

Guerilla Marketing

Just recently, I was wondering why we don’t see more of... ...this... ...this... ...this... ...this... and this here in the states. Yes, guerilla marketing. As you can see, all of these images don’t have their point of origin here in the USA. Then, I got my answer . Seriously, when looking at few of these campaigns, although they are clever and probably very effective, some of them seem destructive and disruptive. I think that American advertisers recognize this, and understood that American culture doesn’t have time or allow disruptions or annoyances, making it a tactic that is rarely used stateside. There are also probably some legal, or rather enforcement reasons that make it more common overseas. Any other thoughts? Everything with the exception of AXE via adgoodness . AXE via ibeliveinadv .

Mandrel Didone is a powerful and conspicuous typeface that has towering x-heights, great contrast, confident bends, and sharp serifs. It is well-crafted for high-impact resistance. It uses its sharp serif ends deftly, cutting through opponents' clumsy clutter in the battle for the reader's attention.

Balance friendliness and elegance with the look of Cabrito Contrast.

The Cabrito family is back again to make a statement. Released as a complement to the children's book, The Clothes Letters Wear , the original Cabrito is light-hearted, fun, and easy to read.

Still bright and playful in its Cabrito ancestry, this new Cabrito member approaches the field with a cleaner, more reductionist form, ensuring that its polished look retains the readability.

To preview any of these interactive features, see the PDF manual. The family also includes language support for 72 Latin-based languages, and there are over 600 glyphs for further refining your work.
