The Font

We found this project casually, surfing the web.

Behind this lovely typography, there is a deeper idealistic stance: make something concrete to fight against climate change.

This is why the Nordic’s largest newspaper Helsingin Sanomat created The Climate Crisis Font – an OpenType variable font that helps people see the urgency of climate change in a more tangible form.

The font’s weight responds to NSIDC’s (National Snow and Ice Data Center) Arctic sea ice data from 1979 to 2019 and IPCC’s prediction all the way to 2050, showing how the ice is expected to shrink because of climate change based on current forecasts.

Was there a better font for repap??
