A Green Font

SPRANQ, a Dutch company has developed a new font that can cut ink usage by 15%.  The Ecofont has a “swiss cheese” design.  The size and the outline of the letters are the same but there are little holes in the letters.  According to company co-founder Gerjon Zomer,“the font isn’t beautiful, but  it could be adequate for personal use or for internal use at a company.” SPRANQ  offers a free download of the font at this site.
They are not trying to make a profit from the font.  According to Zomer, the company is inviting developers to improve the Ecofont further under a free, open-source model.”  An Arabic and Hebrew versions are already under development.
