»Handgloves« or »adhesion«,
Reading or writing, KABK in The Hague or the University of Reading?


Legend has it that the two renowned master’s degree programmes in type design (and their graduates) are rivals. Passionate debates can break out about the best method of drawing an “S”. But is it really true that the schools don’t like each other? Is choosing one or the other really a question of faith? We will look at the distinctive characteristics of the two programmes and the ways in which they differ. The panel exploring those questions and others will include two graduates from each school: Veronika Burian, Christoph Dunst, Laura Meseguer and Dan Reynolds.
