Royal Academy of Art’s Type Blog 

The place where different types come together…


In the LetterStudio second and third year students of the KABK and exchange students can follow courses, i.e., modules, on letters in the broadest sense of the word.
        This includes, but is not limited to, writing, type design, font production, font technology, and everything else that is, or could be part of the métiers of the graphic designer, calligrapher, lettering artist, and type designer.


The spectrum offered is determined by staff teachers, guest speakers, and students, and the scope is not limited to the developments in the professional world.
        The expertise of the teachers implies that different, or even conflicting opinions are represented, which guarantees the pluralism of the course.


Students must register for modules that relate to the areas they want to explore. The length of a module is a full semester and two modules must be followed. Selections must be accompanied by a solid motivation.
        A list of the modules for the 2019-2020 course can be downloaded in PDF format.
