_____An amputated typeface to help amputees get prostheses_____

There are 100 million amputees worldwide, and about 80% can’t afford nor have access to a prosthesis. To help them, we created Amputype— an amputated typeface waiting for its prosthesis.


The anatomy of typography uses the same terms as the human body’s anatomy, such as arm, leg, ear, or spine. To spread awareness, we’ve amputated the universal typeface Noto Sans and built prostheses from other Google Fonts to help amputees receive the prostheses they’re waiting for.
