Walda Verbaenen is a PhD researcher at READSEARCH, under the guidance of prof dr. Ann Bessemans. The aim of this research department is to develop practical/typographic legibility and readability studies within a new conceptual framework concerning typographic design research.
One of the main goals in Walda’s work is the social responsibility which a designer can offer. Hereby she uses the supporting function and power that design and typography (letters) can bring as a useful and meaningful tool. (Visual) language and the use of letters can build a bridge to bring people closer to each other.
