The Martin Agency Marks Equal Pay Day

The Martin Agency is spelling out the significance of April 10th, Equal Pay Day in the United States, quite literally.

Equal Pay Day represents how far into the year the average woman must work to earn what the average man did the previous year, so Martin created an open-format typeface with each angle slanted at 22.7 degrees, and all spacing set to 22.7, to visualize the current 22.7% pay difference between men and women in our country.

Over time, as the pay gap closes (or widens) the font will dynamically shift to reflect the change.
