The Mystery of the Super Eurobeat Font: Solved! 4


Since the most modern version of the series, the font used for the Super Eurobeat logo has evaded many fans. Just what was that font, and where could one find it, or even use it for themselves?

A particularly resourceful fan of the series, Humbedooh, created a faithful facsimile of the font, and it has satisfied fans of the original series and creators of parodies and related fan-works alike.

For all intents and purposes, entirely faithful!

For all intents and purposes, entirely accurate!

However, in my travels and experiences, I’ve seen the font appear in various non-Eurobeat media as well, from popular TV shows (i.e, Futurama), to various pizzerias and the sides of large trucks. Clearly this was not some SEB-specific, proprietary font! After months of wondering and occasional failed searches, I’ve finally found the font in question.

Introducing… Insignia.

Any questions? Try typing “Super Eurobeat” in that font.

According to Adobe’s entry for the font, “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.”

Insignia can be purchased through Adobe, MyFonts, or wherever legitimate and high-quality fonts are sold, starting at $29.99. The rest of us will have to make-do with Humbedooh’s recreation! And with that… the mystery is solved.
