Christian Boer

Christian Boer has dyslexia and is a graphic designer. For his graduation project he developed a typeface for people with dyslexia called Dyslexie. The typeface went worldwide and used by thousands of people. Next to this he is also busy with dyslexia awareness and connecting people that work in the field of dyslexia and giving speeches for teachers about dyslexia in the class.

Christian Boer is a graphic designer and graduate of the Utrecht Art Academy.  He first developed the Dyslexie typeface there as a final project.  A dyslexic himself, Christian set out to create a font that would make reading a less arduous task.  After completion, the revolutionary font immediately caused quite a stir among the dyslexic community and in the international media.

Since winning the prestigious Smart Future Minds Award 2011 in Amsterdam, this media attention has only intensified. Among others, Scientific American, Euronews and Springwise have covered the font.  In 2011, Dyslexie font won first prize at the Smart Urban Stage in Amsterdam, as well as being one of the most talked about presentations at TEDxDubai.

Dyslexie font was a finalist for the Fast Company Innovate Through Design Award in 2012 and went on to many highlights in 2013, including a nomination for the Rabobank New Generation Pitch.
