Bettina Andresen (b. 1986) studied communications design with a focus on typography at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, graduating in 2013. In addition to her main interest, book design, she is also enthusiastic about psychology and neuroscience.
That is why she explored the issue of typefaces for dyslexics while working towards her 2017 master’s in Mainz, birthplace of Johannes Gutenberg. In the autumn of 2016, she designed a study with dyslexics, using an online survey and a live reading test, to research whether standard or dyslexia fonts were easier for them to read.
She is currently working as a freelance communications designer in Hamburg and lectures on inclusive graphic design.
