I have dyslexia. Reading and spelling has been a struggle my entire life, especially in school.

80% of my study time was spent on language education (French, German, English and my native language of Dutch). I got some very bad grades.

After high school I got into a graphic school. This was a huge relief for me. Finally school that was fun.

My graduation project? A typeface called "Dyslexie", made especially for people with dyslexia. The project caused quite a stir... I even ended up speaking about it at TEDxDubai.

The Dyslexie font can be downloaded, free of charge, from www.dyslexiefont.com
. Please try it out.
