Dyslexia Awareness Font

In an effort to raise awareness, dyslexic student Daniel Britton designed a font to simulate his reading difficulties. According to Britton, he’s not trying to recreate the visual experience of dyslexia, which he thinks is ridiculously mischaracterized in the media. “At least in the UK, awareness ads will represent text as seen by dyslexics as a bunch of blurry letters, or an upside-down letter form,” Britton says. “At least for me, that’s not what it’s like at all. It’s more like text looks normal, but the part of my brain that decodes it just isn’t awake.”
