The Society of Typographic Aficionados (SOTA) has launched Font Aid IV, a project that will raise funds for the relief efforts in Haiti.
Font Aid IV raises funds for the organization Doctors Without Borders through the creation and sale of a custom collaborative font created entirely of ampersands. You can participate by submitting your own ampersand, as well as by purchasing the finished typeface through a variety of typeface distributors.
Submit your black and white “ampersand” icon for the benefit font. It should be a vector image file, not a bitmap. Keep it simple, not too crazy. Send it in EPS format to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 29th, 2010.
When the font is available I’ll also post a link to the foundries that have it for sale.
