Font Aid IV: Ampersand Entries

francis bold's picture

For those who have contributed to the Font Aid IV Project, I thought it would be cool to get a cheeky preview of what you lovely people submitted.

Its not necessarily a crit, just a place to see what different styles and variations you come up with. Feel free to comment how you wish tho.

I went for a simple, circley, wiggly, snowman style :)

And off course what a great thing the Font Aid team are doing to raise money for this tragedy. Good to know there's so many caring people out there.

Font Aid IV: A Call to Action

You'll need to provide the artwork in vector format.

Here’s a little something quite ordinary and mundane from me.

Here is my contribution, a single character.

Loads of different styles here and all very cool!

According to Miss Tiffany; the last Font Aid appeal (Font Aid III) for raising funds to expedite relief efforts in countries affected by the Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunamis, gathered more than 220 designers world wide who participated.

It would be great if we could far exceed that on this appeal and hopefully raise even more money. so spread the word!

I just sent in mine. Here it is:

It's based on a doodle I did back in the seventies. Never new what to do with it until now. Let's see lots more.

It's great to see so much excitement around this. We've had close to 50 submissions so far and they have come from all over the world. I can't wait to see the final results. Thanks everyone!

@Jongseong: There's something vaguely Sneetchy about yours!

I'll be submtting this tonight, as seen in it's full form here:

Aw, this is lovely to see!

I wouldn't have imagined Font Aid would still be around now when I started it over ten years ago (!), but I'm glad it is and that Stuart and others have kept it going after I was in charge. I was thinking about it after the earthquake, and I'm glad to see the ball is already rolling. I'm definitely going to submit a design.

I just submitted this one...

My submission... I liked the irony of ampersand as decorative drop cap.

Martin Majoor's picture

This is how my contribution looks like.

my last ampersand submission

Here's my submission, sent it in earlier today. :)

John Lyttle's picture

Glad I didn't scroll through all of those before making my modest little ampersand; I would've been too intimidated.

Christophe Badani's picture

Good project, here's my submission.

outrasfontes's picture

Here is mine. Submited yesterday (in B&W, of course).

Here we go then:

Great project. Mine is a bit grotesque. :)

MichellePerham's picture

Nice work everyone! Over 100 designers from 18 countries have contributed so far. Keep the submissions coming! The deadline is still scheduled for Friday.


Jongseong's picture

Another idea I had today:

Jongseong, that's an eagle!


Quincunx's picture

Ah, damn, I didn't notice this earlier. Perhaps I can still make a nice ampersand before the 29th.

dave bailey's picture

andrijko: Oooooh purdy!

Jongseong's picture

So I have a Sneetch and an eagle. Interesting. :)
