- The Neurodiversity Fishbowl - with Pip Jamieson and Direct Line's Mark EvansNeurodiversity is another taboo topic that we think it’s time to talk about. It includes those labelled with conditions like dyslexia, autism and ADHD. In our latest fishbowl event in our braver series, we discussed what we can do to make the most of the neurodiversity advantage with Mark Evans, marketing director at Direct Line, and Pip Jamieson, founder of The Dots. Our speakers started the conversation and reveal how neurodiversity might be good for your business; but the purpose of the Fishbowl format is for everyone to join the conversation. The event was a huge success, with members sharing personal stories. A humbling and inspiring evening all round. We'll be sharing videos and reviews from the session very soon, watch this space.
- Creatively Abled - LCC Dyslexia Event AnimationCommissioned by Natalie Brett, Pro Vice Chancellor and Head of London College of Communication, this animation aims to inform University of the Arts London staff about dyslexia. The animation was created by LCC's MA Illustration and Visual Media 2014-2015 students.
- Dyslexia - Creatively AbledA brief allotted to MA Illustration and Visual Media students. We, a group of 12 students, managed to develop the entire storyboard, create the characters, backgrounds, infographics, typography, animation and sounds. I came up with the title for the film – ‘Creatively Abled’. It is based on the thought that the Disabled especially with Dyslexia do not lack skills but are rather blessed with creativity and are hence – Creatively Abled! The characters and backgrounds in the film are kept simple, so that they are recognisable and easily relatable. Also, the message is given more importance and highlighted. The graph paper is used to add a more crude, authentic and aesthetic appeal. While the font for the titles is created simply with folded paper, to make it interesting and fun, the font for all information is a font called ‘Dyslexie’ which is a special typeface, and is easier to read for the people with dyslexia. Even the colour scheme is accordingly chosen, which is subtle and not too flashy. The infographics are bold and with brighter colours to grab attention to the important information. Lastly, the music and sounds chosen are to make the video enjoyable.

Since discovering in my 40s that I was born with dyslexia I soon discovered that there was lack of information about the subject and considerable amount of negativity about the subject even though it impacts 10% -15% of the population and so I wanted to raise awareness of it
