Public Type Works

Our first round of experimenting with funding open source fonts is over. We’re not done, but we’re re-imagining what to do next after failing to fund any of the seven initial projects. If you’d like to be notified when we emerge with something new, sign up for our newsletter. We’d like to recognize the following people 👇 who tried to pay for these fonts that would have eventually been free (no one was charged because no fonts met their goal). Thank you all for supporting type designers and the open source community.
