It seems like just yesterday that I was marveling at the fresh new work from a little printing studio in the Midwest calling itself Hammerpress. It was with great pride that I included them in New Masters of Poster Design, showcasing their inventive take on letterpress for the world to see. Soon after, I couldn’t help but smile as I saw their cards and stationery work in some of the coolest shops in town. Success couldn’t come to a nicer (and incredibly talented) bunch! Amazingly, the studio has now reached its 20th year. Stretching from their humble beginnings to become one of the most influential letterpress shops in the world, all while staying true to the roots. I had a chance to talk with founder Brady Vest about the twists and turns of the last 20.

Dutch designer Christian Boer created a dyslexic-friendly font to make reading easier for people with dyslexia, like himself.
“Traditional fonts are designed solely from an aesthetic point of view,” Boer writes on his website, “which means they often have characteristics that make characters difficult to recognize for people with dyslexia. Oftentimes, the letters of a word are confused, turned around or jumbled up because they look too similar.”
Designed to make reading clearer and more enjoyable for people with dyslexia, Dyslexie uses heavy base lines, alternating stick and tail lengths, larger openings, and semicursive slants to ensure that each character has a unique and more easily recognizable form.
