Everybody's doin' it!

Hole Lotta Love
Download the New Ecofont Typeface
Our holidays were neither silent nor holy. (But we’re on our knees thanking someone they’re over.) It’s not too late to become a holey roller. Just download Ecofont, a brand new typeface designed by some Dutch geniuses that’s made up of tiny little holes.

Here’s the backstory: Most printer cartridges end up in landfills. The more ink we use, the more garbage we create. So Spranq designed a font that uses 20 percent less ink by simply removing as much of each letter as possible, while still leaving it readable. Basically, the whizzes got rid of the line that connects the dots to create the characters.
It’s free to download and use, so there’s no reason not to.
Unless you’re just a total a-hole.
Available online at ecofont.eu.
