Fonts for the Future

Social Responsibility

Project Brief

To transform our country, we need to transform education. The Fonts for the Future campaign asked learners from Soweto to donate the one thing that would cost them nothing – their handwriting. Each learner wrote out the alphabet, which was then programmed as a font and made available for sale in a beautiful book on the web. The proceeds from the font sales go towards a fund that pays for students’ tertiary education.
