About Ann Bessemans (BE)

After Ann Bessemans received her Master’s Degree in Graphic Design, she started her PhD studies, during which she researched a new type-design called 'Matilda' for children with low vision, for which Microsoft awarded her two scholarships.

Currently working at PXL-MAD, this ‘New Scientist Wetenschapstalent’ finalist has started a new research group called READSEARCH in which she takes a closer look at typography from a multidisciplinary but always practical perspective. In parallel, she has set a new Guinness World Record by designing the post stamp with the most number of words on it—a staggering 606. Accepting the challenge to design the best letter types this world has ever seen, she will take you on a journey that will show you the wonders of the world that is type design.
