You can search the site for our back catalogue or search the hashtag #CBfonts (opens in new tab) on Twitter. Now we're going to take a little ad break and below it you'll find today's selection!
Common Sans from Essen International
"We sat down to brainstorm around what to do for this year's Christmas project," says Essen's creative director Robert Holmkvist. "After too many explorations of possible combinations of reds and sprinkles of white and compositions of satirical jingles, we decided we wanted to do something a little more meaningful instead and create a hint of awareness in an attempt to make the world a little better, at least one letter at a time.
"We created Common Sans, a typeface that replaces the word refugee with the word human. We just believe that humans are amazing, simple as that. A stamp on their passport should not let us believe otherwise.
"Common Sans is a project designed to make us rethink the words and labels we use to define each other. It is a simple reminder that words are not merely words but carry significant meaning and impact. Being a refugee is a temporary status, being human is permanent."
Common Sans is available as a free download (opens in new tab). However the authors are asking that you make a donation to UNHCR, The Red Cross and Solvatten to support the project.
