Who Designed Amarga Font?
Amarga 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.
