The Master TypeMedia at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague, NL, is a one year programme that delves into type design and typography for different contexts including print, screens and interactive media. Unique to the course is its small size. Students work intensively in a group of no more than 12 under the guidance of experts and teachers from the permanent and visiting faculty. First semester 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.
