The Arrels Foundations is a charity organization dedicated to helping the homeless people of Barcelona. They created an initiative with The Cyranos McCann ad agency called “” to bring some dignity to the lives of homeless people and raise awareness of their plight by creating an initial set of five fonts based on the handwriting of homeless people for use in branding, advertising, corporate messaging and social networks. With the help of Monotype we are pleased to announce the next steps for Homelessfonts.
