Fight for Kindness: Inspiring Typographic Creations from the Design Community

Published Nov 4, 2022

Celebrated on November 13, World Kindness Day is a fantastic opportunity to reflect on our actions and show more empathy towards others.

Fight for Kindness‘ is a non-profit initiative looking to unite design communities and spread messages of positivity and change through typographic artworks.

Created by TypeCampus, a cultural project initiated by Italian type foundry Zetafonts, the annual program invites designers from all over the world to produce a typographic poster that helps spread the importance of being kind, touching on a number of themes including empathy, respect, inclusiveness, ethical integrity and responsibility.

Over 150 artworks were produced for this year’s edition, and the pieces will be showcased from November 5 to 13 through several physical exhibitions.

“World Kindness Day is a very dear occasion to me. Having overcome the thought of kindness as formalities, I have discovered over time that many of the values I believe in and that I tend to, should be enclosed in this label.”

Debora Manetti, co-partner of Zetafonts & TypeCampus and author of the project

“That’s why, with the precious support of the female part of our team, I unearthed this project exactly a year ago. I strongly believe that kindness is a form of intelligence: it has the power to revolutionize relationships between people, and often small changes can make a big difference. The creative industry has enormous power in this relationship challenge and there is a lot we can experience.

Fight for Kindness is a project that comes from our daily managing of typefaces, together with the desire to leave a positive mark in society while being in touch with great designers, magazines, design schools and creativity professionals around the world”.
