It’s difficult to walk in someone else’s shoes if you’ve never experienced a smidge of what they encounter on a daily basis, which is why it’s so imperative to raise awareness.
For Deaf Awareness Week, UK-based Action Deafness has sought to help inform people about what it’s like to deal with hearing impairments via a set of eye-catching typographic posters.
In these prints, text is manipulated to represent the constraints a deaf person might experience every day, such as their struggle to understand another person’s speech when the latter has their back turned, or when too many people speak simultaneously.
View the thought-provoking posters below.
