Fonts for the Future

Fonts for the Future is a fundraising initiative for One School at a Time.

Shift Joe Public's highly awarded Fonts of the Future concept sprang to life as a fundraising initiative for One School at a Time. Learners at Forte High School in Soweto were asked to expand on their future career dreams. Then they were asked to write out the alphabet. Each learner’s handwriting was scanned, traced and programmed into a font, which was then categorised according to the students’ dreams. Fonts were then collaborated into a beautifully crafted font book and are available for purchase online.

Funds raised from the book and online purchases serve to bring the hopes and dreams of these learners to life, one letter at a time.
