BuyFontsSaveLives

Author:

Haymarket Creative Director Paul Harpin hat die Initiative BuyFontsSaveLives ins Leben gerufen, nachdem seine 26-jährige Nichte Laura an Krebs gestorben ist. Typespec verkaufen im Rahmen dessen gespendete Schriften von tollen Schriftgestaltern zum kleinen Preis – die Einnahmen gehen komplett an Cancer Research UK und Macmillan Cancer Support. Wir finden, das ist eine tolle Aktion!

THE TYPEFACES  –  All fonts available to buy and download from typespec.co.uk

LAURA 
A new typeface family. Four styles – Plain, Shaded, Ribbon, Stencil – twelve weights. Designed by Haymarket Creative Director Paul Harpin assisted by PAUL HICKSON. This is my first ever typeface. I now know how hard type designers work.

HESELTINE
Kindly donated by Lord Heseltine. Two styles – Text and Titling. Originally produced as a gift from Haymarket Media Group to Lord Heseltine for his 75th birthday. Designed by Paul Hickson and his wife Patricia. For Hezza’s 80th we added italics, for Latin plant names.

MFRED
Donated and designed by Matt Willey (assisted by HENRIK KUBEL at A2 -TYPE) in honour of his father Nick. This much sought after headline font was originally drawn for Elephant magazine, then used in Matt’s PORT magazine and has featured in the US edition of WIRED.

ORGANON
Designed and donated by G-Type’s NICK COOKE, 2 weights of both Organon Sans & Serif in feature rich OpenType format, complete with Small Caps, alternates and multiple figure options.
