First of all, a merry christmas and a happy new year to you all.
I was browsing the web looking for info about dyslexia. Suddenly I found smth very interesting.
Natascha Frensch, a Dutch designer made a typeface for dyslectic people, called 'Read'.
You can find more info here:
A lot of care is given to 'b' and 'd' kind of problems. People with dyslexia have problems with characters that look alike.
So a 'd' is not just a mirrored 'b' but it needs more characteristics to distinguish it from the 'b'. Same goes for 'p' and 'q' etc.
I love this initiative. Maybe some of you have interesting things to say about this. I myself do not design type, I just use it as a graphic designer.
