New sustainable font

UK design agency Hogarth and custom font makers Monotype have come up with a sustainable font for Grey London to be used across Ryman Stationary and hopefully implement further.


Ryman Eco has been designed in a way that when printed would save ink. On close examination each letter looks to have gaps making it look like a decorative font. When printed at popular point sizes, 10, 12 or 14, the brain does not see the gaps instead fills in the blank gaps so we see the form as a normal letter. The printing process also helps fill in the gaps with the natural bleed of inks that can happen on certain stocks of paper.

If everyone replaced their standard use of Time new Roman with this font, it would be a saving of 490 million ink cartridges. You can download it for free here
