FONT AID IV Haiti »Coming Together« A License to Help (desktop type specimen)

Wallpaper 1920x1200 promoting the Type Designers »FONT AID IV« initiative dedicated to the suffering people of Haiti.


With the words of »S{o}TA«:


The Society of Typographic Aficionados (SOTA) is proud to announce the release of »Coming Together«, a font created exclusively for Font Aid IV to benefit the victims of the recent earthquake in Haiti. 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.


More than 400 noted type designers and graphic designers found more than 400 creative and eye–catching ways—Ampersands—to thank you for your contribution to alleviate the suffering of the people of Haiti.


You may receive gratitude here, here, here or here.


Typefaces in use—except »Coming Together«—for my wallpaper, chosen and combined because of the symbolism of their names, as contrast to the positive symbolism of the ampersand (except japanese culinary preferences):

Anubis by Dino dos Santos (DS Type)

Fugu by Neil Summerour (Positype)


Personal wish:

If you are in the mood, design a wallpaper using the »Coming Together« ampersands and spread it in the WWW to win as many people as possible to contribute to and to promote the »FONT AID IV Haiti« initiative.
