Background

Mija is a grotesk vernacular handmade typeface whose imperfections make it perfect. It is a fresh hand-painted display face with a warm and organic feel. This full-of-ink-traps typeface is inspired by local vernacular signs. Mija looks good at both large and small sizes.

Mija is derived from the words ‘mi hija’, which literally translated means ‘my daughter’. Mija is a Latin American Spanish term of endearment most of the time used by an older person to a younger girl or woman.
