Introducing Haboro, Insigne’s new workhorse. A modern twist on the Didone. Get it today!





Haboro is a powerful workhorse. It’s a neoclassical font developed for numerous uses, ranging from editorial and corporate to web pages and apps.

This new face from insigne Design takes a modern twist on the high-contrast typeface genre known as the Didone. Recognized for their ability to convey clarity, the geometric simplification of the Didone genre adds a level-headed rationality to whichever work it’s applied. Didones are used to lend style and sophistication to a wide number of applications--everything from style or cosmetic labels to annual reports.

With its unique take on this classic genre, Haboro--with its slight wedge-shaped serifs and unique terminals--is still defined by elegance, tradition and timelessness. Even more to its versatility, this multi-purpose text face features whimsical terminals, which liven up even the most serious texts. If you desire, you can also opt for the more usual ball terminals by activating OpenType alternates.

The Haboro family consists of seven weights from a Thin to a Black along with matching italics. The contrast from the letters’ thick strokes and thin strokes draws the eye to your design, making Haboro a powerful visual tool for communicating your message.

The typeface also contains numerous ligatures and alternates. Choose between serif variants such as ball terminals or standard serifs by utilizing OpenType alternates. We recommend using the default contextual alternates and discretionary ligatures in order to benefit from all members of this fantastic font family. In addition, Haboro has a sizable set of option glyphs and numerous other OpenType variables to give your text the unique touches it needs.

Haboro has all of the attributes you need to undertake your next project. Use its modified elegance to shape and mold your next design, whether a web site, app, branding package, or magazine. You’ll find there’s no job Haboro can’t take on.

Carta Marina

Carta Marina is based on the titling found on the famous map drawn by Olaus Magnus in 1539. The map of northern Europe took 12 years to complete, and the total size is a huge 1.7 meters tall by 1.25 meters wide. More information about the map, as well as the high resolution reference document used to create the typeface and illustration set can be found at the James Ford Bell Library, University of Minnesota. The titling is slightly aged, very sturdy and elegant. Carta Marina includes a full set of OpenType alternates for every character in the English alphabet, oldstyle figures, historical forms, small caps and 64 discretionary ligatures. These ligatures are used to alter the appearance of the type so that the printing appears realistic and without any duplicate letters to detract from the antique appearance. The Carta Marina family also includes some of the unique illustrations that give the map much of its character. It includes depictions of fanciful sea creatures, land animals a

Microsoft Expression

I have been trying out the Microsoft Expression web design program recently. My final verdict: I like it better than Dreamweaver. I’ve been using Dreamweaver for 5 years now, but where Expressions really shines is its handling of CSS, which is, in my mind, quite a bit better than Dreamweaver. My “problem” with CSS as opposed to tables is that with tables you can visualize what you are doing. CSS is a bit more programmatic. Expression helps a bit. If you are looking to save some money, and you use a PC, you should download Visual Web Developer. You can do some very advanced stuff with this program, and the interface is very much like Expressions. The price is right: free! However, Expression is more intuitive in how it handles CSS. It’s very interesting how Microsoft is starting to head into Adobe’s turf. Microsoft is working on equivalents to everything in Adobe’s product line. My long term bet is on Microsoft.

DevChatt

I had the chance to talk to a group of developers at DevChatt 11. I spoke on webfonts. The talk was recorded, so hopefully I can put the audio up soon. The presentation is available here: I am very happy about my move to Chattanooga (in addition to moving here to be with my wife). There are some tremendous things happening, and a very strong entrepreneurial spirit abounds. After attending DevChatt, I was inspired to brush off a few business ideas and I hope to develop these further. One is related to my core competency, typography, while the other is in a totally different field. I was also inspired by listening to Ale Paul and Luc De Groot in New York City this past week. Here are a few links to some inspiring local organizations: DevChatt CreateHere costarters.co Chattarati colab.is
