About this font family
Amazônia is a multidisciplinary design project that joins type design, illustration and web design with the whole purpose of creating conscience about the threaten wildlife of the Brazilian Amazon rainforest.
The main element of this typographic system is Amazônia Script, a type design inspired in the exotic wildlife of the Amazon. Completely drawn in brush pen by Sofia Mohr, it’s a versatile font that contains 762 slightly rugged and condensed glyphs, with fast and curved strokes, swashes (for capital and lower case letters) and alternate characters.

It also includes a decorative variant: Amazônia Life, a font design developed by designer Sebastián Águila, that contains a set of icons representing endangered animals of the Amazon rainforest. It includes 52 animal dingbats, with stylistic alternates for dark background use, making it a 104 glyphs font.
As a complementary element to the font system, a set of illustrations were developed by Soledad Águila and coloured by Sebastián Águila that are used in the specimens and graphic support material.
