Calming the Font Wars

We’re all aware of just how much anger the Comic Sans font can inspire here on the world wide web. Thankfully, hotheaded typography fans can now calm themselves down with Gandhijifonts – a series of 12 different international fonts designed around the iconic eyeglasses of Mahatma Gandhi.

The website explains the goal of the pacifist-inspired fonts this way:

We perceive the fonts to be a medium of expression that a man can use, not only to follow the Mahatma’s vision but also to start a revolution of his own, where the fonts will give the power to one’s words. With these, we hope to inspire the youth of today to look at the world through his eyes.

All of the fonts can be downloaded on the Gandhijifonts website.
