Typography Design: Dyslexie font to help Dyslexics read better.

In our continuing quest for unearthing how Design can and will contribute to social good, here is something that is of so much value.

dyslexie is a font designed by Nederlands-based company, STUDIOSTUDIO to to make it easier for Dyslexics to read things better and reduce the effort it takes to read a text. This means, more time to do other things like shop on FUTURE NOTION. (just kidding)

If you have Dyslexia or know of someone who does, do recommend this font to help make their lives  a little better! 🙂

Here are some illustrations you can take for a test drive:

How to succeed as an Entrepreneur in the Creative Industry.

Today, my neighbor’s 7 year old daughter waited for me by the stoop and traded me 3 pieces of original, signed art in exchange for an extra large bar of Toblerone. She got what she wanted, and I got signed, original art on my walls.

I thought it was a great lesson in creative entrepreneurship.

1. Be in the right place at the right time.

2. Have something to offer, preferably something unique.

3. Be charming and make it hard for the other person to say No.

 

 

Design is when you see the ceepy and make it pretty.

Sometimes, it takes a really open mind to make the grotesque sublimely beautiful. An eye for beauty and certainly inner peace to make the world at large re-look, re-think and re-assess how we can re-interpret what is aesthetically pleasing to us.

Here are some creepy pretty insect prints on expensive silk from Giles Deacon SS10 Collection, Karen Walker SS12 Collection & Klaus Haapaniemi’s Scarf Collection – do you have any you’d like to add? Have you ever saw beauty in something rather gross?

Typo Error – Design flaw or fact?

What do you think? Do you think typeface / font size / kerning makes a difference?
