Dyslexia – Typographic Design
Creative Disciplines: Typographic Design, Problem Solving, Graphic Design
This typeface recreates the feeling of reading with Dyslexia for a non Dyslexic person therefore creating empathy and understanding for the problem. Like in any case only once a problem is fully understood can it be solved.
How the typeface does this is by breaking down the reading time of a non-dyslexic down to the speed of a dyslexic by removing around 40% of each letter and making each letter almost illegible in turn then slowing down the users reading experience to the speed of a stereotypical Dyslexic person and then recreating the frustration and embarrassment of everyday reading.
I believe that once that Dyslexia is properly understood we can create better learning conditions for Dyslexic students and let them excel in the same way that every other person can. Just think, there are around 8 Billion people living in the world right now with around 10% – 20% of the population being Dyslexic, so that gives you around 160,000,000 Dyslexic people on the planet, if we can increase our understanding and give the correct help to these people just think how many more Richard Bransons, Elon Musks or Boyan Slats we can produce?
