Holy font fans! Ecofont saves ink (free download)

Appealing ideas are often simple. Netherlands-based design company SPRANQ decided to see how much of a letter could be removed while maintaining readability. After extensive testing with all kinds of shapes, the best results were achieved using small circles.

At this size it looks like rhinestones on mary janes, but used at a regular text size, SPRANQ claims you’ll use up to 20% less ink. Ecofont is based on the Vera Sans (like Verdana), an Open Source letter, and is available for Windows, Mac OSX and Linux. Free to download, free to use.

Thanks, SPRANQ!
