Personal profile

Personal profile

Willhemina Wahlin is a Lecturer in Graphic Design at Charles Sturt University (Port  Macquarie campus), Australia, where she  is also a Doctoral student within CSU’s  School of Communication and Creative  Industries. Willhemina’s research focuses on  the typographic representations of people’s  testimonies of trauma within ‘difficult knowledge’ exhibitions, and the interpretive role of the designer. Her interest in this field evolved from her work as Creative Director for PROOF: Media for Social Justice, a New York-based non-profit organization that utilizes visual storytelling for human rights and peacebuilding. With PROOF, Willhemina has designed multiple travelling exhibitions that have focused on issues such as genocide prevention, gender violence, child soldiers and criminal justice.
