The Society of Typographic Aficionados (SOTA) announced the launch of Font Aid IV, a project uniting the typographic and design communities in raising funds to expedite relief efforts in Haiti.
Type designers, graphic designers and other artists from around the world are invited to contribute artwork to be included in a typeface created exclusively for the Font Aid IV effort.
The theme of Font Aid IV is "Coming Together" which will represented though a font consisting entirely of ampersands.
Coming Together will be made available for sale through several type distributors, with all proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders.
SOTA, a US-based non-profit, is acting as a non-partisan organizing body to help coordinate the effort and ensure all funds are distributed appropriately.
