Designer Philip Meyer creates a comic strip with a braille-like format and 36 degree figures.

Interaction designer Philipp Meyer has created a unique comic that can be read by the visually-impaired. Life is a tactile comic that includes raised text and 360 degree figures.

Meyer first had the idea to create a comic that can be read by those with no sight during his Interaction Design studies. He interviewed visually impaired people and based his experimental project on feedback from the interviews and from his beta readers.

The resulting comic, Life, does not merely depict scenes into tactile images. Meyer used embossing paper and translated the visuals of the story through 360 degree figures with changing heights and faded embossing.
