Disability Typography

Disability Typography

 Slightly distorted text that reads, “Lone proponent of wall-to-wall carpet.”
 Slightly distorted text that reads, “Good at falling."
 Slightly distorted text that reads, “Choreography based on my everyday movements.”

Description:
This project is an experiment with how to give typography a disability aesthetic. The text has been distorted by a computer algorithm so that some of the letters are delightfully lumpy and misshapen. It is a collaboration with designer Gabriel Loeb and uses Paper-Letters, a tool he created to draw and manipulate text.
