Design for All
“Designing means offering a solution to a given problem”.
This is the clear indication of one of the greatest masters of Italian design, who guided Federico Alfonsetti in the implementation of an ambitious project: optimal legibility of text written for all categories of readers, including dyslexics.
Reading, like all human activities, requires energy. If deciphering the written word is not fluid and reading is not immediate, it becomes a “fatigue” that prevents us from focusing all our energy on understanding the content.
Hence the importance of good legibility of the font which is the transmission belt between the text and the reader.
Designed to help dyslexics (DSA) to read with less difficulty and faster, EasyReading® was implemented with a Design for All methodological approach, for which “diversity” is conceived not as a “problem” but as a “value”, facilitating accessibility to the written word for all types of readers.
Independent scientific research has certified it as a valid compensatory tool for readers with dyslexia and at the same time a facilitating font for all types of readers.
EasyReading® is a “hybrid” font because it has both serif and sans-serif letters.
The specific design of the letters with dedicated serif, useful in avoiding mistaking letters with similar form, has led to wider spacing in the text that counteract the perceived crowding effect, facilitating reading.
EasyReading® revolutionises the classic division of fonts into “Serif” and “Sans-Serif” giving birth to a new type: the “Serif & Sans-Serif” font.
