This typographic layout in honour of Stanley Morrison really caught my attention. A clever composition by Pedro Arbeláez in Columbia which harnesses scale and contrast to devastating effect. Look at that ‘A’ continuing the angled stroke of the ‘R’.
I’m compiled some other typographic layout examples on Pinterest and more will follow here with an upcoming interview with Pentagram’s Jessica Svendsen.
How the hell do I get my hands on this giant for my students?
It’s called Open Dyslexic, and it’s available for free. I’ve used it for my students with dyslexia, and they say it really does help a lot. When I can, I try to make handouts, notes, and especially quizzes in the font for them. I’ve even sent it to them with instructions for how they can use it to type papers in it in Word.
