I recently came across and interesting article about a design student in London who created a new font to illustrate what it was like to be dyslexic. Above is a sample of text using this font. Can you read any of the text?
Here are some interesting quotes from the article:
- Taking Helvetica as its base, Britton’s font subtracts roughly 40% of the typeface’s lines.
- “At least for me…it’s more like text looks normal, but the part of my brain that decodes it just isn’t awake.”
- “When I showed it to classmates, they were suddenly like, ‘Oh! Okay. I get it,'” he says. “Which is all I needed to hear.”
