Sans Forgetica – Font that improves memory
Sans Forgetica – Font that streamlines memory – Australian researchers from the RMIT University (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology) have found that our brain reads the fonts that it already knows more quickly, such as Arial or Times New Roman. By which, however, it remembers less content contained in a given text. Therefore, in collaboration with ethologists, psychologists and professor of typography, they have developed a font that is harder to read. Sans Forgetica called it – which in translation means more or less “without forgetting”.
The letters have gaps, are slightly tilted to the left and are in contradiction with the typical way of reading. Deciphering them requires more effort from the brain. Which activates the gray cells and forces you to stop at each word for a little longer. It improves memory and allows you to learn about 7% more information!
