Comic book brings visual design to the blind

Comic book brings visual design to the blind

Who would have thought that an individual without vision could have a predominantly visual experience like a comic book? Copenhagen interactive designer Phillipp Meyer believed that he could make this experience a reality to blind individuals and set out to design ‘Life,’ a Braille, touch-comic book.

With the use of recognizable shapes paired with contextual titles and narratives, Meyer brings stories to life. Featuring four frames per page he uses numerics to indicate reading directions for each story.

The design was made possible with a Braille printer, a system of geometric shapes, a resolution of 20 dots per inch, and a lot of creativity. This project makes available an otherwise off-limits art form to the vision impaired and allows those individuals to experience the joy of design in a new, interactive way.
