The idea came from the credits of an old 1970s movie. Why is it called "Junglemania"? Well, quite frankly, it had nothing to do with anything related to the jungle. It was simply that the letters J, G, M and N look splendid, and there was a desire to show off as many vowels as possible. Lo and behold, Junglemania became the obvious choice. And afterall: SINGLE ANIMALS EAT AMERICAN ORANGES.
ALTERNATE UPPERCASE CHARACTERS
Although Junglemania™ has no lowercase characters, the lowercase character slots are all filled with versions of the uppercase character set.
ALTERNATE VOWEL CHARACTERS
When using Junglemania™ at larger point sizes, you are likely to type words which use two or more of the same vowel characters. You might find that your design will look more dynamic if you use alternate versions of the duplicate letters. Because all of the accent characters in this family are slightly different from their unaccented root characters, you can use them whenever you require alternate vowels. After typing the accent character, in your page layout or illustration program, you can then draw a white box and place it over top of the unwanted accent.
QUICK-VIEW OF ALTERNATIVE VOWELS
You can quickly view all of the alternate characters in Junglemania™ by selecting "Variations" on the website family page for Junglemania™.
The characters in the regular version of Junglemania™ fall on the same baseline, which makes the text set rather rigidly for many applications. For a more casual textsetting approach, we have provided an alternate version called Junglemania™-Staggered. The staggered fonts set with built-in fluctuations of the baseline shifts of each character. The uppercase versions of the characters are shifted differently from the lowercase versions, and in most cases where the letters are shifted above the baseline in the uppercase slots, they will be shifted below the baseline in the lowercase slots, and vise versa (i.e. if a letter is shifted in an undesired direction above or below the baseline, you can quickly shift it in the opposite direction by simply choosing the different case of the same letter).
When you want very effective baseline shifting, you really need to do some manual fine-tuning. In such cases, it is suggested that you start first by setting the text using the staggered version of the font and then manually shift some of the characters further, as needed.
FULL CHARACTER SET
Each font in the Junglemania™ family has a full character set of 232+ letterforms, with all characters designed in the style of the font.
