Type and Media 2014–2015 / Den Haag
TypeMedia is an intensive one year master program held at The Royal Academy of Art, The Hague in The Netherlands, that gives participants the possibility of delving deeper in the field of type design. At TypeMedia, students work intensively in small groups under the guidance of expert and enthusiastic teachers from the permanent and visiting faculty. Courses include calligraphy exercises, stone carving, non-latin scripts, the creation of typeface revivals, Python programming, the usage of state of the art font editing software as well as sketching techniques all leading up to the creation of new letters. The original typeface families exhibited on this website are the result of the final four months of the course. For more information, please visit the TypeMedia website.
This year’s students would like to thank the regular teachers, visiting teachers and supervisors at TypeMedia for their incredible help, support and commitment: Françoise Berserik, Peter Biľak, Erik van Blokland, Petr van Blokland, Frank E. Blokland, Marja van der Burgh, Paul van der Laan, Just van Rossum, Fred Smeijers, Jan Willem Stas, Peter Verheul and our external examiner Phil Baines.
The guest critics and instructors who graciously gave us their time and valuable feedback: Paul Barnes, Tobias Frere-Jones, Frank Grießhammer and Luc(as) de Groot.
And finally, a big thank you to all the people who helped us with their applications, scripts, books, replies and everything else to make this easier and doable, as well as all the foosball table backers.
