Overview

As a designer, you will be joining the creative industry, one of the most booming sectors in the Netherlands and abroad. Not only will you master the skills you need to become a professional designer, you will also develop a critical attitude, reflecting on your own work and that of your fellow students, and your own style and authenticity. Making mistakes is part of your development into being a professional designer. By experimenting, failing and starting again you will create your own style, your signature. You will also learn to develop and protect your authenticity as a designer. We provide you with the best facilities and counseling. You will work together with other students, to learn how to function in a (interdisciplinary) team. You learn to play with images and discover how your visual abilities can create solutions for questions in society.

Career prospects

In your fourth year you will carry out a joint, final exam assignment and your own independent exam project. This is how you will present yourself as a professional designer, ready to start your career setting up your own design studio or finding a job, for instance at a design agency, marketing agency, gaming company or theatre. You also have the possibility to join a master at our Frank Mohr Institute.
