Sora, meaning sky in Japanese, is a typeface family commissioned for the Sora decentralized autonomous economy focused on empowering projects that benefit society. Soramitsu, the developer of Sora, is a Japanese technology company specializing in blockchain development and well-known for creating the first central bank digital currency.
Sora typeface was designed to capture Soramitsu’s spirit and heritage resulting in a type family with cues of low-resolution aesthetics and early screen typography but without nostalgia, as every decision was considered towards the crisp digital environment of today. The particularly big x-height combined with evidently generous counters turns the family into a convenient tool for app and web interfaces, where clarity and effectiveness at any size is an imperative.

The “Iasi” typeface was custom designed for the city’s visual identity and is intended for limited use with short titles (mainly one word), to create impactful visual statements on print alone.
