Developed by Patrick Griffin, Jingo is a retro font style released by Canada Type.

This is the digital makeover and significant expansion of a distinctive melting pot experiment done by VGC and released under the name Mardi Gras in the early 1960s. It is an unexpected jambalaya of Art Nouveau, Tuscan, wedge serifs, curlycues, ball endings, wood type stimulates and swashes, geometry and decorative elements that on the surface area seem to be totally unrelated. However the totality operates in a remarkably loud and playful manner in which actually defies categorization.

Jingo is actually five fonts in one: Over 1000 glyphs, 4 character sets, accessories, swashes and ligatures. The forms are interchangeable in uppercase, lowercase and unicase settings. There is nothing subtle about this typeface. It is well matched for usage on posters and book covers that need delighted weirdness. But most of all it's fantastic for those who like to fiddle with their type setting until astonishingly conicidental pleasantnesses take place. If you're that sort of designer and you understand what you're doing, get Jingo, start up that glyph palette, and play away.
