During the exhibition a special talk will take place at 5pm on Saturday 24 September and will discuss, ‘How to be Creative & Successful when you are Dyslexic’.
Jim Rokos, Dyslexic Design exhibition founder, said: “I am delighted designjunction shares my vision and desire to remove the unwanted and unwarranted stigma sometimes associated with dyslexia and in doing so change perceptions of it. We believe dyslexia is something that drives and inspires creative thought and design.”
The event takes place from 22-25 September 2016 at its new location on Granary Square at King’s Cross, with the theme being ‘Immersed in Design’.
