A Purposefully Jumbled Typeface To Help Dyslexics Read Easily

[shared via Google Reader from TAXI Daily News]

Sydney-based designer Felix Lobelius has created a typeface that is devoted to helping dyslexics perceive text better.

In first studying the symptoms of dyslexia, Lobelius discovered that people with dyslexia often have trouble reading as text seems to jump and get rearranged when they try to make sense of the words.

That inspired him to create a typeface that helps the brain address this. Other designers have also previously attempted to create similar typefaces. One example is Dyslexie, previously featured here.

Lobelius’ work is certainly thoughtful and inspiring.
