I am a second year PhD researcher at the University of Reading. My topic is ‘Armenian typefaces from 1840 to the present: traditionalism, Latinisation and the search for identity through changing technologies’. This research project is funded by AHRC Design Star Doctoral Training Partnership.
I graduated from the University of Reading in 2012 with an MA in typeface design. My dissertation ‘The current state of Armenian typefaces’ tackled the issue of the Latinisation of Armenian script, analysed the evolution of the Armenian script until the digital era and pointed out the lack of Armenian font families.
Prior to graduate from the University of Reading, I obtained a Master’s degree in Communication and Design for Publishing and a Bachelor in Graphic Design and Visual Communication at ISIA Urbino, Italy.
