Jeremy Dooley from the American type foundry Insigne just sent us over a great new batch of designs. Here is a quick listing of his latest and greatest…
Cabrito is a welcoming, everyday font family by Jeremy Dooley. Use it to convey warmth and friendliness on anything from candy and food packages to children’s toys, company IDs or run-of-the-mill promotional material. Cabrito’s unique appearance and high legibility make it equally at home in print as it is on a screen.
Originally a conceptual approach from the Chatype project of Jeremy Dooley and Robbie de Villiers, Quatie has been restructured to add a new industrial element to Insigne’s offerings. Like the Official Font of Chattanooga, Tennessee, Quatie definitely carries a contemporary, hipster feel. Quatie similarly draws much of its inspiration from the industrial brawn of the railroad and the unique characteristics of Cherokee letterforms, giving it an atypical form not usually found in an industrial slab.
Torcao is not merely an experimental font, though. The figures have been crafted and refined into a functional, hard-working typeface that lends itself to many sizes and environments. The font family features a tall x-height and light modulation, which give the typography its unique color highly effective in headlines but still quite legible in longer text.
Play around a bit with the potential of Le Havre Layers. Build effects which include realistic 3D appearances reminiscent of the storefronts of old and adding centerlines, dotted centerlines, and shadow variations. Inspired by the affable appearance of vintage signage from the 1930s to the 1960s, Le Havre Layers spacing is altered from Le Havre Titling’s to accommodate shadows and other options properly. With its generous width it sends a message of refinement and grace. The geometric and art deco curves are a beautiful addition to your work.
Take your reader far away to a tropical morning, where the inviting aroma of a fresh roast introduces them to a gentle breeze and the first, warm light of day. Take them there with Barcis. This organic face with its tall x-height and neo-humanist attributes shows its free spirit through unique terminals, calligraphy-inspired strokes, and a rich variety of OpenType alternates.
