The Hague is known as the 'type capital' of the Netherlands, due to the reputation of the graphic design department at the Royal Academy of Art and its international master course Type&Media. The Hague has a lot more to offer besides. The city is packed full of culture, sport and nature. There are innumerable museums, theatres and festivals; you can practise (almost) any sport you can think of in The Hague; or you can go for a convivial drink in one of the cafés or relax on one of the many terraces. And The Hague has something else that no other city has: a fabulous beach! Only 15 minutes by bike or tram, and there you are with your feet in the sand.

At the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, the subjects calligraphy, lettering and type design teached at the department Graphic Design distinguish this regular course from other academies, both in the Netherlands and abroad. Responsable for this reputation was Gerrit Noordzij who introduced these subjects as a important component of the departments curriculum. Noordzij was awarded for his role by establishing as well as receiving the first Gerrit Noordzij Prize in 1996 during the international ATypI conference in The Hague.
Since 1996 distinguished designers as Fred SmeijersErik SpiekermannTobias Frere-Jones and Wim Crouwel were also awarded with this Prize.

Anno Fekkes, director of VIDE, Visual & Individual Design Experience, was together with coordinator Jan Willem Stas and the staff responsable for the professionalization of the postgraduate course Type&Media, nowadays a full-time Master that gives participants the possibillity of delving deeper in type design for different media.

During 2010 and 2011 VIDE was offering several Type Workshops, once a week during 6 hours, from 14.00 until 21.00 hrs., dinner always included.
The workshops were guided by Donald Roos, several times assisted by Jacques Le Bailly. They teach professional graphic designers and students the principles of lettering and type design. The participants are able to use that knowledge and those skills in their own work.
As from September 2011 more VIDE workshops will follow. Not only in type design or typography, also in identity design and design 

for digital media as well for designers as for clients.

To shift is to pick up speed, to push the envelope, to change your perspective.
All three are useful strategies for TYPO Berlin 2011, the 16th International Design Conference, in order to bring visual communications in line with the latest developments in technology.

TYPO Berlin takes place from May
19th until 21st. This always interesting conference shows the important role which designers, typographers and
type libraries from Berlin plays in the field of graphic-, type design, typography and visual communications.
That's the reason why we think the Berlin Experience can be of great benefit for participants of the VIDE Summer Design Experience. An intensive week with visits to many designers and design agencies, museums, art galleries and cultural events.
Most of the former Experience participants really liked this part of the Summer Design Experience.

Donald Roos will attend TYPO Berlin as one of the keynote speakers and will report about it in one of the following newsletters.
