This project aims to create new Braille typefaces based on designs from typeface design references during the late 19th century and throughout the 20th century. This analysis begins at the end of the 19th century with Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928), representative of the Arts & Crafts movement in Glasgow; moves on to Art Deco with Adolphe Jean-Marie Mouron “Cassandre” (1901-1968), studies Peter Behrens (1868-1940) in his time at the Werkbund; continues with Josef Albers (1888-1976) and his typeface design at the Bauhaus and ends with Max Miedinger (1910-1980) in the Swiss School. From each of the previous authors, the aim is to select one of their most relevant typographies and extract from them their respective design formulas to apply them to Braille. The aim is to improve the language of the blind both at a tactile level to optimise characters and at a visual level to achieve greater social inclusion of the language.
