Braille Neue is a universal typeface that combines braille with existing characters. Designed by Kosuke Takahashi, this typeface communicates to both the sighted and blind people in the same space. The aim is to use this universal typeset for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics to create a universal space where anyone can access information.
Braille Neue draws reference from past works:
“VisualBraille (2009)” by Christopher Heller
“Braille Fonts (2014)” by Larysa Kurak
“Blind words(2015)” by Nuria López
