Eco Friendly Design – An Example
A new environmentally font has been developed by a dutch company called Ecofont. This font is designed to reduce the cost of printing and reduce the negative impact on the environment. The company says it cuts ink costs by 15%.
The prints we make for our 'daily use' not only use paper, but also ink. The question remains - Companies are looking at ways to radically reduce their paper volume wasteage to help save the encironment, but what are they doing about their ink volume over use? Ecofont is a special font that can be used to print with less ink, to make ink toners and cartridges last longer. SPANQ claim that the ecofont can save the consumer up to 20% less link.
Ecofont Environmentally Friendly Design
The essence of Ecofont has little holes in each letter. It took time to develop a font which is printer friendly and environmentally friendly. Early font designs were comprised of stripes, but this made the lettering unreadable. The font itself isn't the most beautiful of fonts, however it can cut carbon emissions and green house gases. Other languages such as Hebrew and Arabic are currently being developed.
