Design practices that hurt dyslexics  

Slightly off the beaten track, this article may be of particular interest if your startup targets a population where there are more dyslexics than usual (architects, many visual designers, and, oh, entrepreneurs), these tips will come in handy:

  1. Don't justify text
  2. Don't add double-spaces after periods
  3. Don't use pure black text on a white background
  4. Don't have long blocks of unbroken paragraphs (this is pretty bad for non-dyslexics too, by the way)
  5. Avoid serif fonts
  6. Avoid italicised text
