Free Font - Spectrashell

Font Squirrel reports: [edited]

Spectrashell began as a logotype for a brand of hard-shell, waterproof passport cases. The logo was required to fit a metal stamped hexagonal 20mm wide badge. The letterforms needed clear, obvious cuts to compensate for detail lost during the stamping process.

Sans Forgetica reports: [edited]

A group of Australian scientists claim to have unlocked the secret to improving human memory retention. And it’s hidden in the words you read on your computer.

Scientists from Melbourne’s RMIT University say conventional fonts make it too easy for your brain to skim over the important stuff. They have developed a font, called Sans Forgetica, which they claim will improve your ability to retain written information.

Sans Forgetica was developed by typographers, designers and psychologists all connected to the RMIT Behavioural Business Lab. The trick behind this font is that it forces our brains to slow down and work harder to process the words in front of us. When that happens, our brains are more likely to remember the information we have read.

The font is free to download here.
