Designers Making a Difference with Dyslexie Typeface

Cool co-operative innovations are happening right here in The Netherlands, linking advances in neurological research with typeface design.

Dutch design group, studiostudio, has developed a new typeface especially for dyslectics. For those unaware of the condition, Merriam-Webster defines dyslexia as “a variable often familial learning disability involving difficulties in acquiring and processing language that is typically manifested by a lack of proficiency in reading, spelling, and writing.”

The typeface, Dyslexie, was independently tested (using EMT and Klepel reading tests) on people with dyslexia at the University of Twente, with positive results. Dyslectics made fewer errors when reading text in Dyslexie typeface as compared to results with a standard font, making it an exciting discovery for both researchers and dyslectics.
