  • There are 5,448 characters in the brush script set
  • Many of the letters were fashioned by some of Rio’s famous city icons (example: a lowercase “r” was inspired by the Pedra da Gávea, while the “T” mimics the famed Christ the Redeemer Statue. Others were made with fast, fluid motions to resemble Olympic athletes)
  • The font was constructed by Dalton Maag
  • The Olympic logo was created by Tátil Design. There were over 138 other agencies competing for the honor of designing the logo as well.
