The project is an experimental design where I set out to prove that there was a way to blend the braille script with the Latin script in print without sacrificing the look and aesthetic qualitiy of the piece. I also was tasked with creating an accompanying website, which migrated the visual quality of the book into digital form.
I took a brutalist inspired approach to the layout not only because it was visually interesting — the sharp edges and defined text blocks created an interesting contrast to the smooth braille dots — but also because I wanted to make a visual omage to the brute force approach of grassroots activism of the past that put accessibility in the public eye
For the website I had to reinterpret the layout because having actual braille type on the event's website would be redundant; braille readers are able to interpret regular text digitally. I decided to keep the braille dots as a visual reference to the booklet, and I created a subtle accent animation with. Instead of utilizing different colours or underlines for accents and links, I opted instead to use motion to show text links as a nod to the tactile nature of the booklet.
