Describing dyslexia isn't easy, understanding it is even tougher; yet graphic designer Daniel Britton found a way to really hammer home the struggle those who suffer from such a disorder. He has designed a font that mimics what dyslexic individuals see when they try to read. Daniel Britton manages to capture the slow and cumbersome process, which really provides a powerful perspective.
Daniel Britton says, "For most people the letters and numbers do not jump around on the page and the colours remain the same, it is simply a break down in communication between they eye and the brain, for most people you can see the information, you can see perfectly each and every letter form but there is something in your mind that is stopping or slowing the process of information and for most this is Dyslexia."
