“Century Green.”

The University of Wisconsin at Green Bay recently decided to switch their default email font from Arial to Century Gothic because “it uses about 30 percent less ink when students print out their messages,” reported the Chronicle of Higher Education. Research done last year by Printer.com confirms that you really can save by switching fonts, and their blog ranks the top 10 most efficient. Coming in at number 1 is Century Gothic.

The Chronicle’s online comment section for the article is full of other ideas on how do reduce ink usage when printing, but my favorite is still the conceptual Pencil Printer.

April 10’s daily design idea is think of one small design choice in your life, then consider its environmental impact. Is there an easy way that you could reduce it?
