The Werkplaats Typografie (WT) is part of ArtEZ Institute of the Arts. WT is a two-year masters programme centred on practical assignments and self-initiated projects. It also serves as a meeting place for graphic designers with regard to research and dialogue.
The WT is supervised by Karel Martens and Armand Mevis. Further guidance is given on a regular basis by Paul Elliman and Maxine Kopsa. Anniek Brattinga is in charge of general co-ordination and management, Roland Früh is responsible for program co-ordination and Liesbeth Doornbosch is office manager.
Visiting lecturers are regularly invited to provide individual tutoring and/or for presentations. Reviews of work, critiques and project participation are informal in character. Participants work in a professionally equipped studio accessible 24 hours a day. The WT is open to a maximum number of twelve graphic designers who would like to deepen their knowledge and skills.
Participation depends entirely upon proven ability.
