Holey Ecofont!

Dutch creative communications company SPRANQ has come up with a font that uses up to 20% less ink than a regular font does when you’re printing.

“After Dutch holey cheese, there now is a Dutch font with holes as well.”

SPRANQ tested how much of a letter could be removed while maintaining readability? After trying different shapes, the best results were with small circles. And so the Ecofont was invented.

The Ecofont is based on the Vera Sans, an Open Source letter, and is available for Windows, Mac OSX and Linux. It’s free to download and use.
