SOTA : The Society of Typographic Aficionados, has joined up to create "Font Aid IV: Coming Together", a benefit font set to benefit the Haiti earthquake victims.
They've said it best:
The font consists entirely of ampersands, to represent the idea of people coming together to help one another. Type designers, graphic designers, and other artists from around the world contributed artwork to the font.
The font is being be sold for $20US and is available through font distributors Ascender Fonts, Veer, FontShop, and MyFonts. All proceeds from the sale of the font will go to Doctors Without Borders, to help with their relief efforts in Haiti.
The “Coming Together” font contains over 400 glyphs and is supplied as a single, cross-platform OpenType font. All glyphs are accessible using OpenType-savvy applications, Unicode-savvy utilities, the Character Map utility on Windows, and FontBook on Mac OS X.I was psyched to see a lot of my favorite font-wizards involved, like Alejandro Paul.
There are a lot of phenomenal ampersands here, and if you were thinking of making a donation to Haiti and Doctors Without Borders, what a great way to do it.
