Sans Forgetica: The Font That Helps You Remember Things

Can't remember something? Write it down!

Still can't remember? Use this font to write it down.

The Sans Forgetica typeface, which was designed by a team of designers and scientists from RMIT University using the principles of cognitive psychology to help you remember.

From DW:

RMIT Behavioral Business Lab's Dr Janneke Blijlevens said normal fonts were very familiar.
"Readers often glance over them and no memory trace is created," Blijlevens said in a statement, but warned that if a font is too outlandish the brain struggles to process the text and the information is not retained.
"Sans Forgetica lies at a sweet spot where just enough obstruction has been added to create that memory retention."
The modifications force readers to spend longer on each word, allowing the brain to engage in deeper cognitive processing.
