Some typefaces are more deserving of the reference original typeface design than are others. Such a typeface is Steves Safefont GD. It is indeed safe to say that this design has caused some controversy. However, the management of Galápagos Design Group believes that the message of the typeface, even before its characters are used to form words in print, is important enough and the design itself compelling enough to warrant the risk of any unintended offense it might cause.
Safefont GD is made up of condoms in various shapes and sizes. The design originated as a lampoon of contemporary punk and garagefont designs of the nineties. It soon evolved into the quintessence of socially conscious design.
Steve suggests this typeface could be useful as a public service font aimed at important health and social issues. In addition, Safefont GD lends itself to a wide range of fun uses.
