Pé da letra

Serifs are these little details on the ends of the strokes of some fonts. The serif fonts are considered easier to
read because they guide the reader’s eyes through the text.

Simulating a disability in a serif font, we expect letters loosing balance and falling down. In analogy with disable
children from the AACD, we created a font which uses “serif-prosthesis” graphic elements to support the letters.

The idea of the type is to disassociate the negative side of a wheelchair and to show that, for mobility disable
children, a wheelchair brings freedom. Freedom to move, to see the world, to dream, to achieve self-knowledge
and to break down barriers. How many times have letters and words allowed you to do this?

Times to go

by Danilo Siqueira

In this type, Danilo Siqueira has imagined a partnership inspired on the design of serif fonts like Times New
Roman and sans serif fonts such as Arial and Helvetica. The font was produced by Gustavo Lassalle, which
explains the production process on the website Tipos do Brasil.

The bold part of the type represents people without physical disabilities. The parts that were replaced
with thin colored traces represent how disabled people receive support (crutch, wheelchair etc.) from others.
The idea is to show that types are different, but deep inside they're equal and as useful and understood as
if they were complete.



Pequeninos

The idea is to explore the different care given to children from AACD, as the use of prostheses (green lettering),
support (red), crutches (oranges) and wheelchairs (blue). The variety of colors was intentional, to create a colorful
and happy alphabet, similar to the children world.


Efeito Borboleta

This font is based on the Butterfly Effect - in which the flapping of a butterfly can cause large changes.
This is a perfect analogy to the process of evolution of the patients of AACD, where every little movement means
great achievements. A first step, the first words or a small gesture have an immense force in their lives.


Importância

These letters have disabilities on part of their bodies. This makes them different, but does not take off their
strength, beauty and essence. What matters is not the difference, but what we can do to help them.
