Having suffered with dyslexia all his life, recent design graduate, Sam Barclay, has crafted a book titled ‘I wonder what it’s like to be dyslexic’ aiming to provide readers with a beautiful, design-led experience of what it feels like to struggle with reading. Sam has turned to Kickstarter to help fund the project and has seen an incredible response so far with over 10% of his target reached within the first 24 hours, [and over 700 shares on facebook] with most donations coming from parents of sufferers, desperate to better understand what their child is going through. 

With stunning typography, design has always been at the forefront of the project, however Sam hopes that the message you take away from the book will help others: “Feeling stupid because I couldn’t understand things that came so clearly to others used to be all I knew. Having people around me, including my teachers, family and friends that could even understand slightly how that felt has helped me communicate my frustration and given me the confidence to complete this project.”
