Passages of the press release: Each letter expresses a characteristic of Rio 2016 Games, its people and city. The letters are written with a single continuous linework, with a fast and fluid movement, suggesting the movements of the athletes in action. The variety of curves in the letters has a unique informality, inspired by the joyfulness of the Brazilian people. Fabio Haag: As a Brazilian typophile, designing the Rio 2016 font was a dream job.
