In this podcast, Shae speaks with Christian Boer the creator of Dyslexie font. Christian has been affected by dyslexia as long as he can remember, this experience inspired him to design a solution to improve readability for people with dyslexia – the Dyslexie font. Christian combined his graphic design skill with his dyslexia, abandoning traditional typeface design rules, favouring instead the user needs of a dyslexic person.
Christian dreams of the day when being able to use Dyslexie font won’t be an exception; but at everyone’s disposal, just like any other font. He hopes to change the negative image – that dyslexia is a shortcoming – and emphasize the positive sides of dyslexia, such as creativity and 3-dimensional visual thinking.
Shae really hopes you enjoy this fantastic podcast.
