Fibrosis Sans is a type family that gives a the hidden, genetic disability of Cystic Fibrosis new light. Due to a genetic protein defection, thicker-than-normal mucus clogs the lungs and digestive tract which causes various health issues. There are around 10,000 CF patients in the UK and if you were asked what CF was, would you be able to answer? This type family hopes to change that.
