Type Craft Summer School

No plans this summer? From 16 to 26 August 2021 you can make friends, develop skills and meet the masters during the Summer School presented by Graphic Matters and Keep An Eye Foundation. The masterclasses are led by Studio Dumbar, Underware, Autobahn, Edgard Claes and Grilli Type.



The ‘Type Craft’ Summer School consists of five multiple-day masterclasses entirely devoted to typography in various ways. The use of signs and text goes back centuries and still plays a major role in how we transfer information and how we design it. During the masterclasses, experts will share their knowledge and skills on current developments.

Each masterclass will be given by a leading international designer. Check out the programme here.

About Summer School

The program offers space for self-development, learning new skills and insights, broadening professional knowledge, increasing your international network and discovering Breda and creative makers. Next to the masterclasses there will be a social program offering studio visits, talks and a Type Tour through Breda. This program is also open to non-participants.

Additional program

In addition to the masterclasses, you can also take part in our additional program. Not mandatory, but we do encourage the program if you want the full Summer School experience!

Type Talks – 20 augustus: An (English spoken) talk show with Studio Dumbar, Autobahn, Underware and Grilli Type. An informal and nice evening with talks and a chance to meet other designers.

Blind Walls Gallery tour – 18 & 19 augustus: Blind Walls Gallery changes the appearance of Breda through impressive and meaningful murals inspired by local heritage and stories. Join us on a walk through the city-centre of Breda and discover the stories behind the murals.

Studiobezoek – 25 augustus: We are going to visit the studio of Rob and Robin. Learn about their craft, workplace and be inspired by the quaint Dutch houses and offices. An informal talk about their work and Q&A. Fun fact: they designed the identity of the Summer School!


All the masterclasses during Type Craft Summer School will take place in a beautiful building: the Ingenhousz Breda! The perfect place to work on new skills and meet other international creative makers.
