Lexia Readable Font Family

Lexia Readable Font Family

Made by K-Type

The Lexia Readable family is designed for maximum legibility. K-Type has tried to capture the clarity and accessibility of Comic Sans without the American comic book associations and whimsical, childlike quality which are culturally inappropriate for many uses and may seem patronizing.

Lexia is an attempt to retain the strength, friendliness and legibility of Comic Sans, and even a slightly marker-drawn feel, whilst tidying up the comic book idiosyncrasies. It adds a hint of dignity, a sprinkling of refinement, and introduces elements of designer type to appeal to a contemporary audience.

Whilst Comic Sans has long been a preferred choice for infant typography from 'Baby on Board' stickers onward, its use risks undermining any serious message and appearing condescending to readers with greater visual maturity, issues that are particularly acute when applied to adolescent and adult literacy.

Typographical concerns from recent educational publications and discussions, and some highlighted by the British Dyslexia Association have been incorporated into the design of Lexia - the simpler, handwritten forms of a and g, the non-symmetry of letters such as b and d, good sized descenders and ascenders, generous spacing and excellent screen clarity.

In 2013, many more accented characters were added to each weight to complete the Latin Extended-A range. Some minor outline, spacing and kerning improvements were also made.
The Regular and Bold weights included here can be used freely without a licence by educational and charitable institutions as well as by individuals.
Businesses can buy a licence to use the font commercially at –
