The Taboo of Illiteracy
This piece was completed as part of the 2015 International Society of Typographic Designers Assessment under the theme of ‘taboo’.
This project explores the taboo of illiteracy which is more prevalent in the western world then one may have thought. In Ireland alone, illiteracy affects almost 18% of adults. (The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Developments Adult Skills Survey) A startling statistic which needs to be brought to the fore of public concern. The purpose of this project is to shine a light on this almost invisible affliction.
This project was awarded membership to the ISTD (International Society of Typographic Designers), by Angus Hyland- Pentagram London, July 2015.
