Werkplaats Typografie is a two-year experimental Master's programme in graphic design at the ArtEZ University of the Arts. It functions as a research environment wherein participants define the content, aims and conditions of their international independent design practice, and develop their artistic, visual, discursive and practical qualities.


During the two-year programme of Werkplaats Typografie at the ArtEZ University of the Arts, collaborations with partners worldwide, international presentations at important venues, contributions to relevant platforms, assignments for external clients and a building that allows to be shaped according to will and changing needs ensure that participants can thoroughly explore their concerns and interests in all their imaginable forms and means of expression.


The future of the field of graphic design stems from the work and positioning of those practicing the craft. Graphic designers are defining the context of their own independent design practice, and indirectly and collectively that of the profession.

The ideas and topics participants identify during the course may be manifested in autonomous or independently motivated work, client-based work or in teaching. Ultimately, almost all Werkplaats Typografie graduates have practices that entail all three elements: they operate in trans-disciplines, moving between different areas and walking the edges of the field – without leaving their core concerns behind.
