Font Aid VI: Aster Affects

In October 2012, Hurricane Sandy struck portions of the Caribbean, mid-Atlantic, and northeastern United States with a vengeance. Sandy was the largest Atlantic “superstorm” on record and is currently ranked as the second costliest Atlantic hurricane, surpassed only by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

In response, the Society of Typographic Aficionados organized Font Aid VI: Aster Affects — a project uniting the typographic and design communities to raise funds for Red Cross relief efforts after the events of Hurricane Sandy. The project theme was represented in a typeface consisting entirely of asterisks and other star-inspired symbols.

Font Aid VI: Aster Affects was released a few days ago. Go to The Society of Typographic Aficionado’s site to purchase Aster Affects for $20.

Here is the asterisk that I made.

Previous post I published about the process.
