Dyslexic Design

'Jim believes the way dyslexics process information can contribute to the development of an idiosyncratic design style.'
- Philippa Wyatt for the Design Council

'Jim Rokos thinks dyslexics are highly creative problem solvers who think in ways that make for killer designs.'
- Margaret Rhodes for WIRED

'In Rokos’s telling, designers with dyslexia are especially good at solving problems in unconventional ways.'
- John Brownlee for Fast Company

“I wouldn’t be able to do what I do if I wasn’t dyslexic,” says Jim Rokos. “I can play with shapes and do experiments in my head.”
- Simon Usborne for the Guardian
