Celebrate Kindness Through The Medium of Typography

  • by

Kindness is in short supply.

Fight for Kindness, designed to mark World Kindness Day, celebrated annually on November 13, provides an antidote by highlighting kindness in all its dimensions and forms through typography.

Created by TypeCampus, an inclusive academic project about how the culture of typography can inspire and build a community dialogue, and sponsored by the 20+-year-old Florentine foundry, Zetafonts, Fight for Kindness is now in its second year.

This year’s response has been overwhelming. The team received 300 entries using 11 different scripts and languages created by illustrators and visual artists from around the globe.

The design community is full of visionaries: the typographic messages we receive give substance to values such as mutual trust, courage, inclusiveness, and ethical integrity. Above all, we hope that they will lead us to have faith in a more peaceful future.

Debora Manetti, co-founder of Zetafonts and program director of TypeCampus
