Eco Font

Drilled-out Vera Sans


Above: On the Malinoski tip, ecofont claims to reduce ink-jet ink by 20%. Honto ni!
Free download for both Mac and PC systems, perhaps an alternative for email print-outs or, faxes (if you have to print out)?

A strikingly simple design solution (circles work best, of course!) it may remind older cyclists of the drilled-out phase we went through to lighten our various bicycles. From ecofont‘s own explanation: “Appealing ideas are often simple: how much of a letter can be removed while maintaining readability?” A design problem for the ages!

The designers? Dutch, bien sûr. Hup Holland!
