Inspiration #16

Font selection could help the government save $400 million. According to Suvir Mirchandani, a 14 year old high school student who conducted a font study, the government could save millions if the government switches from Times New Roman to Garamond on its documents. According to his study, the boy claims that Garamond is thinner, meaning less ink would be used.

Here is the full CNN video: http://www.cnn.com/2014/03/27/living/student-money-saving-typeface-garamond-schools/index.html?iref=allsearch.

The story also trended on BuzzFeed as well – http://www.buzzfeed.com/alisonvingiano/meet-the-14-year-old-boy-who-could-help-save-the-government.

The big questions are is this accurate, and if so, would there be any change.
