There is a new way to review your study notes—a new font that might just help you better remember what you’ve just read. Sound kooky? No, it’s solid research conducted by RMIT.
And it’s free.
Sans Forgetica emerged out of a collaboration between researchers, including a typographic design specialist and psychologists, who combined psychological theory and design principles to specifically help people retain more written information—for example: typed study notes.
Roughly 400 Australian university students participated in a laboratory and an online experiment conducted by RMIT, where fonts with a range of obstructions were tested to determine which led to the best memory retention. Sans Forgetica broke just enough design principles, without becoming too illegible, and aided memory retention.
Sans Forgetica is available free to download as a font and Chrome browser extension at sansforgetica.rmit. And if you want to find out more go to:
