Dyslexia – Backup plan

For the group we decided we needed a backup plan if the typographic idea didn’t work out. Looking back to my original idea, I suggested the backup plan should be based on imagery ideas I had already developed in my spare time and before we had met up with storyboards, research, and other ideas to share. After getting a brief idea of what images we might use, I wrote a quick script of what the narrator would say over the animation.

Dyslexia is the difficulty in learning to read or interpret words, letters, and other symbols, that don’t affect general intelligence.

Some of the greatest minds of the century had learning disabilities

Albert Einstein, Walt Disney, Steve Jobs, and Agatha Christie are those great minds that have inspired those suffering with dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia 

As successful as they became, they managed to conquer their disadvantages and take on the strength of their abilities

Dyslexic minds have abilities like no others. They:

  • have creative minds 
  • excel at solving puzzles 
  • see the ‘big picture’ 
  • more curious 

If you struggle with reading, writing, and identifying numbers, student services are happy to help by offering support with your education

If we were to go ahead with the imagery animation, we would make use of our ideas of the typography by including it in a printed piece of ephemera in the form of a booklet or leaflet. The same would go for the digital piece of ephemera which could be a gif or an app design.
