Type Directors Club Salon
New York, December 4, 2019

In this video, the creative leaders of Applied provide a behind-the-scenes look at what drove the design of Atkinson Hyperlegible, a typeface for people with low vision, which Fast Company named a winner in the Graphic Design category of its 2019 Innovation by Design Awards.

Development of Atkinson Hyperlegible was part of a larger project – a rigorous research-based evaluation of the Braille Institute name and brand equity, developing a brand positioning to capture the vision and direction of the organization, and creating a new visual identity to connect the institute with a diverse, expanding audience.

Applied discusses the ten things that drove the creation of the typeface. The panel includes:

  • Craig Dobie, Founding Creative Director
  • Brad Scott, Founding Managing Director
  • Elliott Scott, Creative Director
