Two of the team who worked to develop, design and test the font - RMIT's Stephen Banham and Dr. Janneke Blijlevens - were in Sydney to accept the prestigious Best in Class Accolade in the Communication Design category in recognition for outstanding design and innovation.
Sans Forgetica is believed to be the world's first typeface specifically designed to help people retain information and remember more of typed study notes. The awards jury praised Sans Forgetica as 'simply genius.'
"This is a brilliant example of research being analysed, translated and designed into a positive outcome," the jury stated. "This project hits all the criteria by creating a useable font that is based on strong collaboration and psychological research. This work is truly a standout and usage of the typeface should be widely encouraged."
