Christian Boer, a Dutch designer who is dyslexic, has developed a new typeface, dyslexie, that aims to make reading easier for dyslexics.
“Traditional fonts are designed solely from an aesthetic point of view,” Boer writes on his website, “which means they often have characteristics that make characters difficult to recognize for people with dyslexia. Oftentimes, the letters of a word are confused, turned around or jumbled up because they look too similar.”
Designed to make reading clearer and more enjoyable for dyslexics, Dyslexie uses heavy base lines, alternating stick and tail lengths, larger openings, and semicursive slants to ensure that each character has a unique and more easily recognizable form.
