Professor Peter Bain contributed an original asterisk to a collaborative typeface for Hurricane Sandy Relief.

Peter Bain, Assistant Professor in the Department of Art, contributed an original asterisk to a collaborative typeface for Hurricane Sandy relief.

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.

More than 250 designers from 41 countries contributed glyphs to the project.

The project theme was represented in a typeface consisting entirely of asterisks and other star-inspired symbols.
