Font Aid V: Made For Japan

A typeface to benefit earthquake and tsunami relief in Japan

The Society of Typographic Aficionados is organizing Font Aid V: Made For Japan — a collaborative project uniting the typographic and design communities with a goal of raising funds to expedite relief efforts after the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

Font Aid V

Your creative contributions will be compiled into a typeface and sold through the site being set up by Neil Summerour from Positype. The hope of Sogo Japan is to directly deliver funds to organizations in Japan, such as AMDA International (Association of Medical Doctors of Asia). Sogo Japan will circumvent regular international charity channels and the inefficiencies associated with them.

Submission Guidelines
