Focus on research

Readsearch, Hasselt University & PXL University College - MAD

In the summer of 2015 Ann Bessemans founded the typographic research group within PXL-MAD/Hasselt University (Belgium) called READSEARCH. Focussing on reading research, type design and/or typography is in this research group looked at from a multidisciplinary and scientific perspective, but always with a practical attitude. The artistic practice forms next to, based on and in dialogue with experimental, but theoretically funded research a substantial share. READSEARCH provides a unique environment that brings together design researchers, typeface designers, scientists, students and stakeholders through research, courses and documentation.

READSEARCH provides a unique and inspiring environment that brings together design researchers, typeface designers, scientists, students and stakeholders through research, courses and documentation. In this environment, thinking and creating are perfectly synchronised.

READSEARCH explores borders of legibility/readability for several target groups. Established conventions aren’t lost track of during research, but are combined with looking at what conventions could be on digital media and complex information structures, or what they could mean for digital typography. READSEARCH investigates different topics: Rhythm & Legibility, Rhythm & Reading Comfort, Visual Prosody, Dyslectic Readers, Beginning Readers, Readers with a Visual Impairment, Homogeneity & Heterogeneity in typefaces and Reading Ergonomics.

READSEARCH is embedded in the understanding of the typographic historical development, as well as the impact of type-making and typesetting technologies.
