Kevin Bormans

Kevin Bormans holds a MA in Graphic Design. Being fascinated by letter shapes since his teens, this passion was further fed and sharpened during his higher education by dr. Ann Bessemans.

His graduation project, which dealt with regional accents in speech in Flanders (in type design and graphic design) for which Ann was also his supervisor, was elected for the national exhibition β€˜Week van het Ontwerpen’ during the international biennial in Kortrijk (BE) in 2014, and was a part of β€˜De Klas van 2014’ by the Belgian design magazine Kwintessens. This project led to a PhD within the research field of visual prosody.

During his stay at READSEARCH, Kevin first worked as an assistent of Ann before starting his own PhD. This PhD focused on differences in the utterance of prosodic type parameters between introvert and extravert children through and influenced by gradations of these parameters in text. Kevin was also involved in a European COST action (E-Read) on reading in the digital age.

Due to unforseen circumstances, Kevin left READSEARCH with mutual understanding before finishing his PhD, and wishes all current and future members all the best.
