Online Open Day: Master TypeMedia

The Master TypeMedia at the KABK is a one-year programme for graphic designers looking to delve into type design and typography. During the programme you will be designing for various media like print, screens, and interactive media.

Every aspect of type design will be covered, such as design, research and technical skills, contrast, rhythm, proportion, and weight. Your projects will be conceptually diverse, you will explore expressive typography, developing new (digital) tools and creating designs for newspapers, scientific publications, or traffic signs.

TypeMedia is a small programme in order to promote personal coaching and intensive cooperation. You will be coached by experts and be given guest lectures by leading type designers, typographers, and graphic designers who will improve theoretical depth through discussion.

Furthermore, guest lectures, collaborations and excursions will further introduce you to the professional field. Graduation projects by TypeMedia students are sold to leading publishers and many alumni are active at type foundries and software producers.
