Coming Together - Font Aid IV font


FontAid IVComing Together is a special font containing over 400 ampersands contributed by almost 400 different type designers from 37 countries around the globe. The Font Aid IV Project is a charitable endeavor organized by the Socitety of Typographic Aficionados (SoTA). All money raised from the sale of the Coming Together font will be donated to Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) to help the people of Haiti recover from the devastating earthquake.

Font Aid IV is a collaborative effort uniting the typographic and design communities in raising funds to expedite relief efforts in Haiti. The Coming Together font features was assembled by Chank Diesel, with Grant Hutchinson, Shu Lai, James Greishaber, Michelle Perham, Albert Whitley, Christopher Slye and Juliet Shen also volunteered their time on this project.

The ampersand symbol can be used to add an element of panache, elegance or even simple utility to short phrases. Ampersands often come in handy when space is at a premium. This wonderful collection of ampersand symbols can be used as graphical elements to add a new dimension to a design or document.

Coming Together is in the OpenType PostScript (.otf) format. It is compatible with Mac OS X and Windows systems, and all the ampersands can be accessed via a character selection utility.
