I designed this set of icons for Learning Ally, a company that creates resources to help dyslexic children and their parents. These icons are used primarily on their website to identify different types of media and resources.

A year later, Learning Ally contracted me to design an infographic for them. I created a different set of icons for this project, but kept them similar in style to the ones I had previously made. I designed it for a child-friendly audience, drawing heavily on the bright colors used in their identity guidelines. For the heading typeface, I used Raleway, because it is playful and inviting. The letters are also somewhat asymmetrical, which makes it easier for people with dyslexia to read.
