Monograma (Typelapse)
[Federico Parra]

Bogota, Colombia-based type designer who created the basic sans family Ortodoxa (2014), the modular typeface Hemiciclo (2013) and the hairline typeface Flexline (2013, a font that can be boldened by its own stroke). The foundry, Monograma, is located in Bogota and was founded in 2012 by Federico Parra and Tatiana Gomez.

The round sans serif Rotokas (2013) performs well in general, while its motivation is unique: Rotokas is a sans serif typography. It is probably the first font designed exclusively to type Rotokas language. Spoken by Bougainville islanders (Papua New Guinea), Rotokas has the world's smallest alphabet consisting of only twelve Latin letters.

In 2015, Parra set up Typelapse.

Co-founder of Bastardatype in 2017.

In 2017, he designed the flared display typeface Magma and the strong calligraphically inspired text typeface Flux.
