Last week’s news story about 14 year-old student Suvir Michandani’s plan to save the U.S. government $400 million per year by encouraging the switch to use of the Garamond font in official documents went viral. Now the ad agency Grey and the British office supply and stationery company Ryman have gone a step further with the launch of a free environmentally friendly, money saving font that will reduce ink consumption.
The eco-friendly typeface, designed by Monotype’s Dan Rhatigan, is called Ryman Eco. Made up of fine lines rather than the usual solid strokes, the font is supposed to use 30% less ink than popular fonts such as Time New Roman, Arial and Verdana.
