Handwritten signs of the times

 
July 10th 2014
 

The handwritten signs of some of Barcelona’s rough sleepers are to be put to wider use than simply helping their individual authors survive.

According to the Guardian, this is a new venture between Arrels Foundation, which works with nearly half of Barcelona's homeless population, and advertising agency the Cyranos McCann. The messages are being scanned, converted into downloadable fonts and sold online.

'Homelessfonts.org' is aiming to raise funds to support homeless people as they try to leave the streets behind and move on with their lives.
