Overview

During the Type and Media programme of the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague students will work intensively in a group of no more than 12 under the guidance of experts and teachers from the KABK and abroad.

Students explore every aspect of letterforms: contrast, rhythm, proportion and weight as well as type history, font technology, digitising and tool development. The curriculum is constructed to produce expert designers with a thorough knowledge of, and pronounced affinity with, type and typography.

Career Prospects

Graduates of the Master TypeMedia at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK) have become type professionals at Adobe, FontShop, Monotype, Frere-Jones, Commercial Type and Hoefler & Co. Many TypeMedia graduation projects have been published at leading type foundries including Bold Monday and Typotheque. Alumni teach in type design courses at Cooper Union, Yale, ECAL and EINA.
