Masterclass: Autobahn (sold out) Type Craft Summer School 2021

From 24 to 26 August, Autobahn is organising the masterclass THE SCARCITY TYPE. The master class is part of the Type Craft Summer School.

The Scarcity Type

A consumer acts from the idea of abundance. A maker acts from the idea of scarcity. How minimal can you go?

During this three-day master class, Autobahn will guide participants through topics such as: How do you experience minimal communication? What does minimal typography look like? How little do you actually need to tell your message and reach your target group? And how does this translate into the use of materials?

From your role as a maker, you will learn to think, choose and work from scarcity. In collaborative sessions, participants will be challenged to explore the extremes of typography in a dialogue with materials. The physical result will be shown in the public space of Breda.


  • Day 1 Concept development: gathering inspiration, sharing ideas and thinking with your hands.
  • Day 2 Creation: collect materials, share sketches and make something with your brain.
  • Day 3 Presentation: gather audience, share story and give (away) with your heart.
