Fracking is currently a contentious issue in the UK and in particular Lancashire. As design students who are local to the area, we decided to help the cause by creating a bespoke typeface that could unite all voices through one font.

After visiting and speaking to the protestors at the site we then named the font Fence Fairies, this is named after the activists who operate at night by creating designs and messages around the site.

The typeface was used on a range of relevant applications that help spread the message, such as Protest banners, Picket signs, correspondence and Newspaper Advert
