A typeface to know what it feels like to have dyslexia.
Dyslexia causes difficulties in distinguishing the letters, a condition that experts say could affect between 3% and 7% of the world population, when a lesser or greater degree is read.
To take action on the matter, the designer Daniel Britton, who was diagnosed with the disorder in college, has created an interesting typography that seeks to create awareness among the population, he has eliminated 40% of each letter of the Helvetica font for us to have an idea so that you can pass it to people who have this difficulty. These letters, if tried to read together can take up to ten times more than usual.
Its creator explains: “What I wanted to do was recreate or simulate emotions they feel while reading who have dyslexia to highlight how frustrating it is trying to read something simple.”
Without doubt, an excellent proposal that is worth mentioning and sharing.
