Notice Anything?

For most individuals, the copy on the right should be easier to read and read quickly, while still retaining the content.

Why? The magic of Bionic Reading.

Founded by typographic designer Renato Casutt from Switzerland, Bionic Reading brings a new form of accessibility to content by revising text blocks in a way that highlights the most concise parts of their words.

Renato's website goes on to explain that "this guides the eye over the text and the brain remembers previously learned words more quickly."

As someone who has struggled with reading comprehension throughout my childhood, this reading format feels like a game-changer and one we wanted to share with you.

To learn more about Bionic Reading and how to enable it on your devices, check out Renato's website.*

As a local nonprofit, we hold an Annual Celebration and Grant Awards Ceremony each year. Due to our current in-person limitations, we looked to Captivation Agency to help us take our program virtually.  From the outset, they were accommodating and patient, guiding us skillfully through the process with ease. To me, that is equally as important as the final product, and they certainly delivered on both counts. The video was absolutely amazing and is a production that elevates the mission of Impact100 SRQ in the Global Impact community, and across our own community as well. We look forward to our next project!
