UX Problem

Problem

Many high school students with Dyslexia struggle to engage with reading due to the visual design of books and lack of customization available to them.

Target Users

Readers, especially high school students, with Dyslexia or visual impairments

How might we...

  • develop books that are more accessible to readers with Dyslexia?

  • create a system that not only benefits Dyslexic readers but those with other disabilities as well?

  • make reading more approachable, especially for high school students?

  • create a shopping experience that puts readers in charge?

  • offer resources for learning?

Logo System

Abiblio is a brand built on the idea that reading should be accessible to all and is developed especially with Dyslexic high school students in mind. Thus, the logo is simple and avoids capital letters and italics to help with readability issues.

Marketing Poster

Abiblio takes the chaotic, and often confusing, reading experience and simplifies it. As the viewer moves from top to bottom in the poster, the tangled mess of letters becomes gradually clearer to reveal Abiblio’s crisp logo. Information at the bottom describes the service and directs users to the website.

Book Covers

Using the symbolic color imagery used in each novel, an abstract interpretation of each narrative is represented on the covers. For example, The House on Mango Street tells the coming-of-age story of a young girl, Esperanza, growing up in a low income Chicago neighborhood. Despite the dreariness of her surroundings, Esperanza is full of life and hope. Both The Great Gatsby and The Things They Carried were analyzed in the same way and designed accordingly.
