Type Efficiency

Posted in Design by kmtom on January 18, 2010

As a great follow up to my previous post, Matt Robinson recently took to drawing on walls to display the ink efficiency of various fonts. After drawing them large scale on a wall, the ink left over in the ball point pens shows how efficient the font are. In an ironic twist, the fonts which were most ink efficient, are lease energy efficient on a computer screen, as the more white the more energy required to light up the screen.
