Águila design is based on the combination of straight lines, curves and triangular shapes as well as on Didone typefaces. The font also has semi serifs— a notable characteristic that gives it a singular appearance.
Águila was specially designed to be used as a display font for editorial design, packaging, branding, broadcasting purposes and for any project that requires a clean, modern font with a strong character.
Águila comes with a set of more than 400 characters that support over 200 Latin-based languages.
Who Designed Águila Font?
Águila font was designed by Sofia Mohr.
Her work inspiration is usually related to her personal experiences. Being Brazilian and living in a different country (Chile), has always pushed her in trying to rescue aspects of her own culture, allowing her to feel closer to her origins. It might be the aroma of an expresso coffee, or the wildlife of the amazon rainforest, even more personal experiences of Sofia’s childhood, that she tries to re-interpret through font design.
The first font she designed was Café Brasil, specially done as part of her font design diploma at the Universidad Católica de Chile.
This work was after selected as part of the 2014 Latin American typography biennial, receiving great feedback overall, motivating her to continue learning and consider font design as a full time profession.
Calligraphy has been an important part of her learning process, helping to incorporate a more personal touch to what she does. This method was specially important in fonts like Amazônia, Sofia’s first brush pen font, which required a wild organic stroke.
