The dyslexia symbol was created to empower the dyslexic community
Formed with the letters p q b d the symbol is inspired by dyslexics and how they process information differently in ways that provide advantages in reasoning and understanding relationships.
"A designer, I wanted to create a symbol that would be meaningful for those on this journey. I turned to the common misunderstanding that dyslexics are reading backwards or in mirror image. Inspired by the three dimensional aspect of the letters p q b d, this stylized design becomes a symbol for awareness and a place to start conversations about dyslexia."
