Font Aid IV: Coming Together, a Collaborative Typeface benefiting Haiti

In today’s world, few stories have the legs to outlast the 24-hour news cycle. While a spokeswoman for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs called the recent Haitian earthquake the worst disaster the UN has ever confronted, two weeks later the headlines are once again dominated by health care reform and the rumored Apple tablet computer.

Because of this, we’d like to spread the word regarding The Society of Typographic Aficionados Font Aid IV: Coming Together, a Collaborative Typeface — 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.

To participate: Submit a black and white “ampersand” as a vector image file, not a bitmap. Send it in EPS format to by 01/29/10.

There’s still 3 days left, so fire up Illustrator and get to work.
