I also think something that puts math dyslexia together with dyscalculia is the way to go.

If you want the "fun" stuff that already exists:

ENGLISH MAJOR, YOU DO THE MATH


[url]www.whatonearthcatalog.com [/url]has

I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT THERE WOULD BE NO MATH INVOLVED


I DID THE THE MATH AND I'M STILL CONFUSED

I would wear a shirt that said 'math dyslexia - it's real, count on it' with a link to the forum underneath or somewhere else. I think we need to make a few design examples so we can see them not just imagine? gooup, interested?

Uh huh, Rac is right here: what message are we trying to get across.
It's spreading the word, to make Dyscalculia more well known. So let's make it simple and understandable for others Pfft

I can imagine a bumper sticker that says

MATHS DYSLEXIA IS REAL!
-COUNT ON IT-

I know it's just a variation on the same idea but it's a simple statement with a short jokey punch line.

If we could use Gooup's logo, we could make a huge variety of things.
Just download it from the site and then make our own.

T-Shirts, Keyrings, Bumper stickers, window stickers, tattoos... no wait.. forget that last one!

Actually I think I prefer that one without the punchline!

I think it's important that it's short enough to read so that someone who quickly walks past can read and understand it within a matter of seconds. Even if they don't get to read the website name, thy can always google maths dyslexia. At least it plants an idea that they can then develop. In fact, come to think about it, that's what I did! I didn't know the name so I just typed in what I knew, but it just took someone to suggest that maybe it was real!

Gooup if we used your logo, would you be able to adapt it to a black only design as well? Maybe as a vector graphic if you know what I mean so that it can be photocopied without loosing quality. I'm doing a graphic design degree so I can help out as well if you want.

(I must say, I love gooup’s “dyscalculia”; written out in that manner, it can be read, but not easily – it makes you really stop and think about what it’s saying. Terribly clever!)

The idea of having ‘slogans’, I think, is great. They can be slipped into all sorts of conversations and included on/in flyers, letters, and whatnot –with that in mind, I toss out the following...
DYSCALCULIA:
Math dyslexia just for the hell of it.


You don’t count on dyscalculiaforum.com…but then again, no one does!

Math Dyslexia = Dyscalculia
Worldwide, the numbers are absolutely staggering.


dyscalculiaforum.com – where “math” is a dirty word.

Math Dyslexia = Dyscalculia
…just can’t count the difficulties of math.


dyscalculiaforum.com – counting on each other.

Math Dyslexia = Dyscalculia
Yup, it’s a 24/7 + 365 kind of thing.


dyscalculiaforum.com – open 24/7 + 365.

Math Dyslexia = Dyscalculia
Been there; doing that...wearing the T-shirt.


dyscalculiaforum.com

OK – enough of this frivolity. It’s late - way into the wee hours of the morning, already (did you guess that from the above?) but any way to get the word out… m.

As for the logo thing, how about a puzzle piece (like, to show we're in the same cluster as auties) composed of random digits? I might design it in Paint to show what I'm thinking of.

Big, cool version:

Medium, colourful version:
scarrion.uw.hu/dclogo2.jpg
And the avatar-sized little thing:
scarrion.uw.hu/dclogo3.jpg

That's what I can do with just plain Paint Smile Any comments, suggestions?

I think a t-shirt would be a GREAT idea - looks like this is an old thread though. Sad

I like the phrase "math dyslexia - it's real" because it capitalizes on what people already know and twigs awareness that there might be something else out there. That was the phrase I saw in someone's livejournal icon that led me to this forum.

I don't like the ideas that talk about how we "can't" do math or numbers stuff - YES WE CAN! We shouldn't advertise on what we CAN'T do. Better to make awareness of what we are.

Just about every forum I have visited has stuff on cafepress.com. If you make it clear that the funds go to the forum, or help spread awareness, I don't think it's a big deal. People looking to buy stuff might be led to the forum because of it as well. I don't think having a design on cafepress would make it seem like the forum is just in it for money or anything like that.

Considering that this site doesnt even have ads, I don't think anyone would mistake it for a business.

I agree with TwistedxKiss and also merch would 1. Help spread awareness and 2. Raise funds for the upkeep of this site and go towards any other sister sites to this one like the Dyscalculia Day website.

If anyone needs any art created, I'm pretty handy with photoshop and the like if you need a digital form of it. I just have to know what you'd want; I'm not really great with designing things, but I can make them in photoshop. Smile

I'd love a bumper sticker but I don't know of any print shops where I could go get one made, and I also don't know if those can be produced on a singular basis or if youd have to buy them in bulk. I'm pretty poor either way. Sad
