The UK’s leading stationer Ryman Stationery and the ad agency Grey London have commissioned 26 British established designers to create «beautifully sustainable» posters to promote the «world’s most sustainable» font Ryman Eco. It uses 33% less ink than a standard font, so it could save up to 490 million ink cartridges every year if all the printing was done with it.
In fact, words can save lives. Not only the meaning of the words, but the typography as well. Haymarket’s creative director Paul Harpin collaborated with Typespec, a leading UK type consultancy providing type design & custom font services and expertise, to launch the Buy Fonts Save Lives effort. As part of the effort they sell fonts with the proceeds going to Cancer Research UK and MacMillan Cancer Support.
