Background

Insignia is a 1986 typeface by British designer Neville Brody. Originally developed as a headline face for Arena magazine, Insignia is a monoline display typeface immediately identifiable by cross-strokes on the capitals that cut through the main stems of the capital letters. Use Insignia for advertising and display work. The “A” faces are similar to the regular ones, but have alternate versions of the following characters: E, F, J, P, R, S, Z, Thorn, s, t (and the accented versions of these characters).
