Applied Design partners with Braille Institute to design a font for those who are visually impaired
October 14, 2020
The Hyperlegible Typeface Changing How We See Print The coronavirus pandemic is clearly at the forefront of all of our minds—but there are countless other healthcare puzzles going on at any given time around the world. One is the low-vision paradox: Despite a decrease in blindness worldwide, people are now living long enough to lose their vision. So what does that mean for printed materials—and how can designers create fonts that are easily read by the growing population of low-vision consumers? Enter Atkinson Hyperlegible.
September 11, 2020
Graphic designer Applied Design Works has collaborated with the nonprofit organisation Braille Institute to develop a “hyperlegible typeface” for the visually impaired community.

Applied Design provides a behind-the-scenes look at what drove the design of Atkinson Hyperlegible, a typeface for people with low vision, which Fast Company named a winner in the Graphic Design category of its 2019 Innovation by Design Awards.
All About Vision
November 8, 2019
At long last, a typeface designed specifically for low vision readers. Modern medicine has turned low vision into a public health paradox: While blindness is declining worldwide, more people are growing old enough to lose their vision. Therefore, an aging population poses a mounting low-vision challenge — especially when it comes to reading text set in type. Typefaces define the shape of text, making it legible enough for most readers while creating difficulties for people whose low vision can’t be corrected.

This typeface hides a secret in plain sight. And that’s the point Not everyone who is vision impaired needs braille. Some just need a clearer typeface. Growing concern about vision impairment has made the century-old nonprofit Braille Institute rethink its approach and reach out to serve more people. That led to the creation of a new typeface called Atkinson Hyperlegible—the winner of our 2019 Innovation by Design Awards for Graphic Design. It’s a typeface that, at first glance, looks like any other. But it’s been carefully and quirkily designed for people who cannot usually read type very well.
