Dyslexic Design Thinking

Where others saw a dead end, I discovered a universe of possibilities.

In Dyslexic Design Thinking, Gil Gershoni shows how a misunderstood condition affecting as many as 1 in 10 Americans offers heightened advantages, what he calls his “hyper-ability.” Using his experiences as a creative director as a lens, Gil shares how he transformed a perceived weakness into a strength and how neurodiversity helps his teams collaborate, ideate and innovate. 

Read about how Gil developed a relationship with his dyslexia on Medium.

Dyslexic Design Thinking has attracted audiences inside and outside the design community, across the neurodiversity spectrum and around the world. Gil regularly speaks at conferences, universities and organizations, including a sold-out session at South by Southwest.
