But the best part is the creators are inviting people to try and create better version of this Eco-friendly font. Again, the program is open source, and so anyone and everyone is welcome to download it and try their hand at creating a font that makes a statement in more ways than one. It’s also a great form of advertisement for creative communications company SPRANQ.
