Homeless Fonts


This ground-breaking scheme is the outcome of a collaboration between the Arrels foundation and advertising agency The Cyranos Mcann, both based in Barcelona. The project combines creativity, typography and social commitment to give the homeless a voice and dignity back into their lives. All profits go towards food, shelter and social health for the people supported by the Arrels Foundation.

I was so glad to see that this fantastic initiative had gained a massive online following last year. The stunning fonts are being used by some of the world’s largest brands and are also available for you to buy at: homelessfonts.org
