Fonts save lives: support the Bail Project with Matt Willey's type designs
At the beginning of the year the acclaimed type designer Matt Willey gave all his typefaces to the BuyFontsSaveLives initiative which aims to sell typefaces to raise money to support Cancer Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Support.
The fund-raising project was inspired by Haymarket's creative director Paul Harpin whose niece Laura "sadly died aged just 26."
Harpin created a new typeface family to sell in her memory with other type designers and experts "kindly joining in to help raise funds."
As noted by Willey "the new site is taking longer than we had hoped."
Until the launch of the BuyFontsSaveLives site Willey's typefaces are available to buy with all proceeds going to another initiative, the Bail Project, " a nonprofit that provides free bail assistance, reunites families, and restores the presumption of innocence."
Sales from these typefaces will continue to go to the @bailproject for 1 more week (16th Oct). We've raised $16,903 so far. Thank you to everyone who helped support the project.— Matt Willey (@MrMattWilley) October 9, 2020
They will reappear – soonish I hope – on a new BuyFontsSaveLives site raising $ for Cancer charities https://t.co/JKyPRA497T
