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.

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.

The rigorous consideration given these details leaves a delicate typeface that doesn’t get washed out in certain applications.
