Águila, which is Spanish for eagle, is an aptly named display face that is strong, sophisticated, and perhaps a bit dangerous. The extreme contrast of stroke weights (especially in the heaviest its 9 weights), is reminiscent of Didot. As a result, Águila feels tailor-made for fashionable brands. But the similarities to Didot’s more austere forms end there, with Águila sporting a confident ensemble of triangular shapes, razor-sharp semi-serifs, and a general flare for the dramatic. We could envision this big-personality typeface paired with restrained a geometric sans that could allow Águila’s strengths to shine.
