Society of Typographic Aficionados is organizing
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. Designers from
around the globe contributed glyphs in the
form of asterisks and other star-inspired
are type designers, punch cutters, wood cutters,
type founders, compositors, printers, and
bookbinders from conviction and with passion.
Not because we are insufficiently talented
for other, higher things, but because to us
the highest things stand in the closest kinship
to our own crafts. Rudolf Koch
are also graphic designers, typographers,
new media artists, calligraphers, sign painters,
printers, software developers, illustrators,
writers, and photographers. We are professionals
and amateurs. We are students and teachers.
We are historians and visionaries. We are
all of these things, and more.
