This is the irregular –though frequently– published wiki-pdf-book-magazine-log-report-zine of the newest study at the Royal Academy of Art [KABK] in The Hague, The Netherlands:

Interactive / Media / Design. This publication will expand and change continuously. It will be updated, its design will change from time to time, chapters will be added, people will come, people will go – but it will remain the same publication with the possibility to be a book one day or everyday, when we publish it at Lulu.com. Maybe after four years when the students graduate as a retrospective, maybe sooner. And if printed sooner, it will be a good overview of what happened until that specific moment in time. So, don’t mind spelling, grammar mistakes or bad English. Maybe you even hate the design. We don’t care. This document is about us sharing with you what we are doing, have done or are up to. So make sure that you have the latest version (check the date on the cover), so you know you have the latest info. Enjoy! Best, Marcel Kampman Coordinator I/M/D Royal Academy of Art, The Hague m.kampman@kabk.nl

“The internet speaks of Web 2.0, a new, social generation of software made to share information. The new I/M/D course in The Hague is about Creativity 2.0, according to Kampman: educating ‘creative’ individuals who are absolutely unlimited in their way of thinking.” (NRC Next, 22nd of August 2006) There is one thing that all first year students of the Royal Academy of Arts’ new course Interactive/ Media/Design have in common: they can’t be classified. Many have finished a course already, but are looking for broader horizons. I/M/D focuses on students with multidisciplinary interests, who like to combine various creative skills.

The sky is the limit with I/M/D, but initially students learn basic skills like graphic design, sound design, visualizing and concept development. Just as the Karate Kid’s master Mr. Miyagi made him wash and wax cars to learn the ins and outs of karate, our students need the basics in order to eventually realize their ideas properly. This –as they call it themselves– wiki-pdf-bookmagazine-log-report-zine introduces you to our I/M/D students, their teachers, their projects and their sources of inspiration. You will read about the “Pool of Masterminds”, a group of creators comprising of designers, architects, authors, journalists, film makers, etc. who inspire, motivate and challenge the students. You will also read about the students’ work made for e.g. MTV, Stop Aids Now! and TNT. In the back you can find a list of related media. After one year, I/M/D has become an integral part of the academy. The Karate Kids of tomorrow are paving their way to success and we intend to watch them with great interest and enthusiasm!

Irad Lee Irad (Tel Aviv, Israel, 1982) is working with audiovisual design and interactive media development. Trained in electroacoustic music composition, Irad studied Sonology (sound design & music technology) at the Institute of Sonology in The Hague where he was experimenting with aspects of sound morphology and the design of complex sound structures. In 2006 he joined i/m/d, willing to further explore post-digital art, mixed-media technologies and their impact in cultural and social life. Irad’s work examines the intersections between memory, emotional experiences, natural phenomena and new/unstable media technology. Typically, these works are a result of profound research into a certain idea, form or content, bringing together the fields of architecture, interactive media and audiovisual arts. His current projects are based around information design, visualization and interactive media integration that are concerned with the notions of digital culture and environment, its social intercourse and its consequences and cultural artifacts.

Rick Nijhout Based on the artist platform ‘PHKade’, a well-known initiative within the Amsterdam night-live, and their individual projects using photo, video and graphic art, Rick Nijhout together with Koen Kuiper decided early 2005 to start performing as the vj-combination ‘S_loop’. Their experimental start, using stylish and minimalistic animation techniques, rapidly developed into a versatile repertoire of video-art. Presently ‘S-Loop’ is the resident VJ-combination for clubs and organisations like ‘Vreemd@Sugar Factory’ and ‘Wanted Now!@ Hotel Arena’. They are also frequently performing at venues such as, GZG, Studio 80, Club 11, Lichtfabriek, Amsterdam Dance Event and Blijburg. This year they have taken a shot at the Visual Sensations VJ competition and already made it to the region finals held at the Ekko (Utrecht) on the 15th of december. Rick is also responsible for the innovative video-leaders of ‘Ster&Cultuur’, supporting cultural activities on the Dutch Public TV-stations, and is constantly working on improving his individual video projects. Besides video-art he is also busy with the creation of graphic design and websites. His goals for the future are to explore all the different fields of creating media and more importantly, the ideas behind it.

Jasmijn Pols After 4 years of study she graduated from the Nimeto Utrecht as a graphic designer. Her last assignment was to create a new product or invented service that doesn’t exist yet, she came up with “Memento” world wide service to keep your memories save from time and new technologies. Not soon after that she decided to broaden her horizon. Working temporarily as a freelancer, she earned money to go to Australia. Once she was there, it was just a little step to go to Asia. There she discovered Thailand, Singapore and Cambodia. This was a great time to figure out what to do next. Meanwhile she kept doing photography, poems, graphic design. She wanted a study that was different than others that offered more challenges that would look further then the rest. That would give more opportunities to show what your really are a capable of. That there’s a thin line between theory and training. She found this in i/m/d. She thinks, that with i/m/d, she can accomplish what is in her head in real life. Even if it isn’t possible today, it might be tomorrow. She will set her aims on traineeships in all the corner’s there are in the work field of interactive media design to learn what there is to learn. So she can start her own business. In what exactly she’s not sure yet, but she’s sure it will be creative and a lot of fun. Just as she is herself.

Glenn Satyanegara Glenn (1983) was about to do a second year of Graphic Design at the Royal Academy of Art before he found a more appealing study, I/M/D. He did some guerilla work for Nokia and Blend magazine. He is the creative mind behind DEAD. BEFORE.DIPLOMA a freestyle alternative consciousness. What to accomplish in the near future? To see more solutions, to show more solutions, to do.

Vanessa Schauer After passing the European Baccalaureate at a 5 years school for Media Informatics, Vanessa studied law in lovely Innsbruck, Austria. At the same time she participated in Latin and Arabic classes. Various cultures, including their fonts, tongues, music and traditional dances always catched her attention. Dance classes, playing the flute and drums is what she did early in her life where she also developed an interest in nature, especially in alley cats. The fascinating environment in which she was raised, the Alps, inspired her to do some photography. She was an assistant producer for the radio and at theatres.

Przemyslaw Siemion Przemek was born in Opole, Poland. He grew up in Katowice, and after a while he moved to KrakĂłw (Cracaw), to study International Relations at Tischner European University. At this time he was interested in global culture, globalization and civilization processes in general. In the meantime he was working as web developer for few communities in Poland, diving into web design and knowledge about online communities. From this time his interests expand to information architecture, design, usability and new independent media like podcasting and vodcasting. Addicted to traveling, new technologies and learning more about new cultures, he moved to the Netherlands to explore new interests and to learn more about new media. Currently, in the KABK, he is trying to learn more about different media, new way to express himself, learn new skills and the most important try to look at this world from a different perspective. Opening his own company was also a part of his new experience in the Netherlands. Future plans... Stay to the end of I/M/D course on the KABK, develop himself and ‘stay hungry, stay foolish’, (Steve Jobs).

Menno Steenvoorden Menno was born in Leiden and raised in Noordwijk where he lives his whole life already. His hobbies are surfing an designing. He started as a webdesigner and made sites for his friends and himself. When he got his first customer he thought that this is something he would do for the rest of his life. But on the Grafisch Lyceum in Rotterdam [GLR] he chose for Animation instead of New Media Design. On his internship, he found out that he didn’t want to do anything in 3D animation or making websites for a boss. After graduating from the GLR, he started a little company in design and developement with a friend that is good in scripting and Menno takes care of the designs. To find out what he wanted to do, he followed a two year during school called ‘Open Studio’. He learned all the ins and outs of film making, editing and directing. Menno’s goal is not to specialize in something particular but to learn a lot on every direction. He realized that he wasn’t ready with developing himself. He thought his ideas where to shallow and had no content. So he decided not to start working fulltime, but to study i/m/d to develop himself more in concept development and to broaden his horizon.

Dorien Traa After her graduation, Dorien decided that she wanted to study English. She thought that she should at least try the University now that she had the oppurtunity. But after two weeks at the University, she quit. Before she made the decision to go to the University she had been hesitating a lot because she liked the Academy of Art aswell.Photography is her hobby for quite some time now and she really liked the idea of doing something creative. Dorien has always been facinated by illustrations and new devices. She sometimes finds herself staring at a picture for hours, concentrating on all the details. And she’s always jealous at people who have the newest iPod or the newest mobile phone. She admires people who can come up with the ideas and design something so pretty. So after she quited English, Dorien contacted the Academy immediately because she wanted to know if she could still participate in one of the studies. They said that she had a tiny chance of still getting in. She first considered Photography, but found another very interesting study, something that sounded even better to her. She was so glad and so happy with her decision. After one week at the Royal Academy she knew that this was something she enjoyed. The study is so broad, there is so much to learn about every aspect of designing. She found something where she could express my creativity.

David Wieland After a few false starts at various colleges, he practically rolled into the i/m/d course, which, as later would become apparent, fits David like a glove. In his spare time he’s always had something ‘artsy’ on his hands. It began in his childhood with drawings, and about 8 years ago when he was thirteen, he started to tool around with Frontpage, just as HTML was about to become the Next Big Thing. By trial and error he learned the essentials of every program he thought he could use to deliver his ideas as he saw them in his mind. he soon mastered Photoshop simply by trying, trying, trying to find how to get that particular effect. And every time he learned something new – He still does. When he was so focused on Photoshop in his spare time, he knew he wanted to do something in the graphic design field later on but at the same time that thought somehow limited him in his freedom. He thought: ‘How can you be absolutely sure that a very specific profession is exactly your ‘thing’ when you haven’t had or tried anything else?’ Photoshop and a bit of web design were the only tools he really used. So unconsciously he knew he wanted to do something more than just creating imagery – he wanted to create concepts. Ideas that have not been done before. To be truly original and not being limited in skill or supply. This thought process was not revealed to me until I understood what i/m/d was really about: idea development.

Sam Winkel Sam (Recife, Brasil, 1985) started to draw landscapes cartoons etc. When he was 9 years old a second dimension coloured my life: music! He had drum lessons for 7 years. During highschool he started as a DJ. After a few years playing on school parties and parties of friends he was lucky enough to get gigs at a popular beach club in Scheveningen. This is where he started networking and now, a few years later, he’s a resident DJ at club Silly Symphonies in The Hague where is already has drawn attention of some other organisations. He first tried Media and Entertainment Management and Graphic Design, but felt that he didn’t fit in. Nice people, good education but Graphic Design was a bit to narrow, not 100% Sam material. A few months later he heard about i/m/d. For him, it combines all his interests: conceptual thinking, coming up with new ideas/things, both graphic and more interactive design and last but not least: music. So at this time his goals are to do well in school and in the weekends play in the clubs and in his sparetime produce his own tracks (what he’s also doing in at i/m/d). His long term goals are: be active in a field he really likes and not be (just) doing it for the money but for passion and to have a nice little family.

Besides their regular assignments, the students work on some special projects. They worked on a ‘cromo’ (commercial promo) for MTV, contributed to the presentation of the academy at the Studiebeurs (a fair where all educational institutions present themselves to new students). Occasionally, the students go on fieldtrips for inspiration, like the ‘Kesselskramer Outlet’ exhibition in the Kunsthal in Rotterdam and a visit to their headquarters.

Cromo MTV/KFC in corporation with Fabrique

4 Sepember 2006 Photo’s by Przemek, stills from the cromo by Fabrique.

MTV contacted Marcel (who also works at Fabrique) to make a commercial promo (‘cromo’) for Kentucky Fried Chicken to call for entries for their ‘What do you do best?’ campaign. Commercials in that campaign show people do unique tricks. Then it states: ‘At KFC we know what to do with chicken. What do you do best?’ The cromo should tease people to send in what they do best. The winner wins his trick in a commercial on MTV. The outcome of the brianstorm was to show people stating on camera that they can do the most rediculous tricks like dropping a pencil in a sharpener from a distance, reversing jackets without using hands, etc. The same week all footage was shot in the classroom of I/M/D, starring the students and their ideas. The cromo was edited by Fabrique and ran on MTV from October to December 2006.

Contribution to the presentation of the academy at the Studiebeurs

From: Menno Steenvoorden Subject: IMD Briefing Date: 22 september 2006 15:24:14 GMT+02:00 To: All students Hi all, This is the moment to test my english writing skills. Marcel called me about "homework" for monday. On this years "studiebeurs" the KABK will have a stand. And for every study direction there's a short video about the contents of that study. IMD doesn't have a short video YET. So Marcels Idea was: Everybody makes up a product or service that isn't invented yet and will be on the market within 2 years or something. The product you've made up will be explained by yourself on a MTVish &KFC-ish way on camera. It will be shooted in a Daylight area studio in The KABK. I Hope this is clear for everybody. If it's not just e-mail or call me back, My number 0624226xxx My email menno@ixxxlo.nl I wish everybody a nice weekend. Be carefull and don't do stupid things that I also won't do :) gr, Menno your fellow student.

Opening exhibition exhibition ‘Kesselskramer Outlet’ in the Kunsthal, Rotterdam because of the 10 years anniversary of the agency.

21 October 2006 Photo’s by Przemek and Irad, poster by Kesselskramer

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of Amsterdam communication agency Kesselskramer, the Kunsthal Rotterdam is presenting a retrospective of the agency’s self-willed work. With audacious and contrary advertising campaigns using numerous media channels, Kesselskramer has acquired an excellent reputation since it was established in 1996. Take Ben, for example, the mobile network. Thanks to the unusual and personal approach with which the brand was communicated through television advertisements, posters and products, Ben has more or less become a household name. The same approach is taken in the exhibition KK Outlet, designed as a 200-square metre shop displaying well-known and less well-known statements used in famous campaigns. Major clients such as Ben, Diesel, Nike and MTV turn to the agency, renowned in the Netherlands for its campaigns for Bavaria, Radiol and Het Parool newspaper. Kesselskramer has also put smaller clients on the global map, among them the now notorious Hans Brinker Budget Hotel.

Visit to Atelier van Lieshout with the Visualizing class, Rotterdam

31 May 2007 Photo’s by David

Atelier Van Lieshout (AVL) is a multidisciplinary company that operates internationally in the field of contemporary art, design and architecture. AVL was founded in 1995 by Joep van Lieshout. The name Atelier Van Lieshout emphasises the fact that the works of art do not stem solely from the creative brain of Joep van Lieshout, but are produced by a creative team. The works of art are practical, uncomplicated and substantial. The work varies from sculptures and furniture, bathrooms and mobile home units to complete architectural refurbishments. One of the many applications and techniques used by AVL are the large polyester constructions in striking, bright colours. These polyester constructions, of which the large mobile home units are the best known, form the AVL trademark. For a number of years now the focus has no longer been on standardised, made-toorder furniture, but has shifted to works of art that can be used for a selfsufficient and independent lifestyle. In addition to this development and the production of applied art, the Atelier also realises many autonomous art projects.

Mastermundo Creative Conference at Today’s Art festival, The Hague

22 September 2007 Photo’s by xx

Passion defines first Mastermundo conference Passion was the keyword of the succesful first edition of Mastermundo, a brand new creative conference by the brand new study Interactive/Media/Design at The Royal Academy of Design in The Hague. The stars of new media and design came out for a day of inspiring words and pictures. From poetry to innovation strategy and from biogenetic redesign to cartoons within a few hours. Fresh ideas and thoughts came flying off stage in an inspiring day of talks by eleven carefully selected Masterminds. A group of exceptional people with themes that differed widely. What the speakers had in common is the endless passion and drive for what they do. So much, that they didn’t mind passing on their knowledge with a new breed of designers. Because they understand the relevance of passing on knowledge and know that they themselves can create new ideas just as easily as sharing them. Erwin Blom (head of VPRO Digitaal) talked about the punk ethics of the web, stemming from his own career as a musician, while Michael B. Johnson (MPG Lead at Pixar Animation Studios) gave a little insight into the closeknit Pixar family, their train of thought and their office jokes. Regine Debatty (we-make-money-not-art.com) told us about the importance of understanding how big the impact of biogenetic design will be on our lives. Jeroen van Erp (creative director at Fabrique) and Tjeerd Hoek (executive creative director at Frog Design in Seattle) introduced us to their favourite creative thinkers and designers, and showed their love for solving problems in design and communication.

Also talking about their drives and passions were Kris Moyes (The Directors Bureau), innovation strategist Derek Cheshire and innovation strategist and experience designer Zachary Jean Paradis, soul coach and poet Devon Reid (New Shoes Today), designer/illustrator Fons Schiedon and architect Arjan Dingsté (UN Studio). Mastermundo hopes to be back next year with an expanded program. Mastermundo’s concept and speakers follow the internationally oriented art education at the KABK closely, and students find themselves in the center of society. I/M/D students develop mediumindependent concepts, and are educated to be a new generation of designer: one that crosses disciplinary borders, ventures into new areas of the working field and can make smart links and connections. During the study, each 2 weeks a Mastermind visits I/M/D to challenge, inspire, motivate the students. For the most recent overview of the Masterminds, visit I/M/D’s weblog and look at the list on the right or search the blog with ‘mastermind’ as search term.

The palette of courses is developed to on the one hand enrich your ‘toolkit’ as a designer to be able to create and prototype anything you come up with, and on the other hand, to teach you all possible ways in idea generation and make them come true. This ‘toolkit’ consists of graphic design, photography, visualizing, sound design, interaction design to selfmade hardware, working wood, etc. Once you aquired all these competences you will see that at the end it will all come together. This is what we call the ‘mr. Miyagi method’. Like Daniel-san does in the movie ‘Karate Kid’. In this chapter you find everything you need to know on both practical and theoretical courses. And, some wisdom by mr. Miyagi. Bon apetit.

1rst year, 1rst and 2nd semester

The success of any creative work depends not only on the ability to find good ideas, but on the skills for developing, managing and presenting those ideas to others. This course will explore different techniques for finding and developing ideas and apply them in common project and professional situations, such as presenting design briefs to potential clients, pitching ideas to peers or superiors. Readings and assignments will pull from cross discipline examples including digital media, architecture, web design, film production and others. The students work on real assignments for real clients.

Class participation We’ll be doing many exercises during class, creating easy opportunities for participation. If you really don’t want to ask questions, participate, or get involved during class, this might not be the class for you. If absolutely necessary you can choose to express your opinions outside of class: comments should address what you agree or disagree with regarding experiences in class or solutions to issues raised. Idea journal One major goal of the course is to improve your understanding of your own creative process. The idea journal assignment is to keep a journal (physical preferred, but digital is allowed) with you as much as possible during the semesters, and write down any ideas you have, at any time, about anything, anywhere. This is an easy way to help you become aware of your own creative process, and provide a simple way to return to them later. The journals will be handed in late in the semester and graded primarily on volume, not quality. Sketching, drawing, doodling, diagramming, evil caricatures of other students or instructors, or use of other techniques, including, but not limited to, those discussed in class is encouraged. You will be required to bring your idea journal with you to class each week. Elevator Pitch & Design Brief A critical part of creative work is presenting ideas to others. You will grow your experience with both conceiving ideas and expressing them by developing a written design brief for a concept and presenting an elevator pitch for the idea to the class. This concept can be related to your work, an idea for a small business or software startup, a pitch for a feature length film, anything (but remember, you will be graded primarily on the quality of the brief and pitch, not the idea itself). The design brief will be no longer than two pages in length and must establish: the goals for the idea, the problem you’re trying to solve, the core elements of your solution, and an example (sketch, wireframe, model, photo, etc.) or prototype that illustrates the concept. Based on your design brief, you will develop a 5 second, 30 second and 2 minute presentation, the actual pitches. The goal is to present your idea in a maximally compelling way in a several different, but limited spans of time. There will be two elevator pitch sessions during the course: a dry run and a final presentation. Students will receive feedback from the class and the instructor for improving the pitch for the final version. In class assignments Every week we will do one or more exercises exploring idea generation, communication and decision making techniques. You will work in different ways, from competitive groups, to working alone, to working as a class together to solve a problem. In some cases you won’t fully understand what you’re doing until it’s done.

Stop Aids Now! (First semester assignment)

September 2006 – January 2007

Visuals by xx The first semester the students have worked on an assignment for Stop Aids Now!. How can we involve the current contributors more, so much that they will initaite projects themselves? How can we create involvement with the subject? Can we come up with alternate ways of fund raising?

Involvement Card by Glenn

The ‘Involvement Card’ is a concept for a next generation bank card that creates the possibility to make donations at an ATM. For example, if you have 1,253.45 on your account and you withdraw 50, you can donate the small change (3.45) This activates the card, resulting in an emitting light from the sides of the card. This way being socially involved gets ‘rewarded’ and wil give you ‘status’. In an ideal world all cards would shine. The same card also acts as a digital ‘container’ where you can store all your financial services on to, like multiple bank cards, creditcards, etc. and you can browse through them to select your service. That leaves you with no reason not to donate and also solves that stack of cards in your wallet.

‘Doing good will make you shine.’

Attention Recycling by Rick

Each day we’re confronted with dangers: true dangers, makebelieve dangers, new dangers and dangers we’ve all ready taken in account. More then ever are we being flooded with hazard warnings just to shift responsibility and avoid being sued for not warning someone. The symbols to warn people have turned into icons. For example, on a pack of cigarettes only the black border of the warning message tells us that the message itself is bad news. We don’t need to read it anymore, because we aready know what it will say. So we can use this space for other messages, like messages concerning HIV/AIDS. This principle can be used in various other situations too, as long as the warning symbols convey their message to people clearly. This might result in unexpected situations where the symbol in combination with the message may seem disconnected, but they both have the same goal: warm people.

‘Since we already have your attention, we’d like to share something else with you too.’

How to create intelligent, responsive media environments and shape the two-way communication between the human and the machine? What factors are essential in the design of interactive applications appealing to our senses, triggering emotions, influencing our behavior and way of thinking? Interaction design focuses on mastering elementary conceptual, visual and technical skills required in many interactive media productions. The students work on projects based on individual concepts, create their own visuals and animations, but mostly develop one of the most challenging and fundamental elements underlying the structure of interactive systems – the code. Exercises in scripting graphics, programming feedbacks, coding interfaces are evaluated in terms of beauty, functionality, usability and other issues related to user experience.

Augmented Reality demonstration

7 November 2006

Photo’s by Pawel The team of the AR+RFID Lab (www.kabk.nl/lab) at the Royal Academy of Art is working on the development of new, innovative applications of two emerging ubiquitous computing technologies: Augmented Reality* and Radio Frequency IDentification*. I/M/D students were asked to participate in the demonstration of Augmented Reality and brainstorm about possible scenarios of experiments and concepts of products with use of that technology in the field of art and design. * Augmented Reality (AR) is a field of computer research which deals with the combination of real world and computer generated data. At present, most AR research is concerned with the use of live video imagery which is digitally processed and “augmented” by the addition of computer generated graphics. * Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) is an automatic identification method, relying on storing and remotely retrieving data using devices called RFID tags or transponders. An RFID tag is an object that can be attached to or incorporated into a product, animal, or person for the purpose of identification using radio waves.

Remus Ockels XX Remus was born in groningen 1979, and started playing instruments at the age of 11. Mainly guitar and drums. Being influenced by surf music (remus is an enthusiastic surfer sinds the age of 7) and metal he explored the guitar riffs by his own, and learning the logics in western music theory. During the end of his teenage years he started listening more and more to drum&bass music, and started using reason and fruityloops to experiment with electronic music tools. He started making progress very fast and looked around for more influences beside some friends who were also into making electronic music. After some research he found the high school of arts in Utrecht in specific the faculty of music technology and sound design. He past the tests without difficulties and started the 4 year sound design education. He realised in this period what sound means for atmospheres and how you can manipulate the state of mind with frequencies.These ideas were also a consequence of studying classical Indian music, he bought a sitar in India and had lessons from a renowned Indian music teacher for two years. One of the projects he did for the academy was writing a score for so called snoezel sessions, these are held in care centres for mentally handicap children and children with

the syndrome of autism.The idea is to bring the children in a positive state of mind in special rooms filled with lava lamps and flurry toys. Especially the group of children suffering of autism were very interesting as an audience. He wrote a minimal composition in extreme slow tempo and big tension layers spread over 30 minutes in time. The other side of his musical progression in this time was joining an avantgarde jazz rock group were he played guitars and electronic effects. Because of all the electronic tools for music creation he needed a contrast in wood and strings, and switching from one instrument to another he now changed the sitar for flamenco guitar. He started to get obsessed with the difficult rhythm structures and so called cante jondo (pure flamenco vocals). During the end of his education he created a graduation project together with two fellow students, creating a cd with own material and releasing it on the international market. All three of them graduated with the cd “Humanworkshop 1”, and because of the success of this album they continued releasing music on the humanworkshop record label. In summer 2005 the humanworkshop guys worked together with texelse boys (see Marcel Kampman) at the lowlands festival and did workshops in real time sampling. They recorded artists like zuco 103, vive la fete, etc. and used the multi track recordings in combination with recordings from the camping site to create a breakbeat mix for the nightlife of lowlands. In September 2005 Remus released his first solo album “the 5th season” a combination of soundtracks, flamenco rhythms and lots of electronic drums. In 2006 he made the sound logo for the company YACHT, and wrote the music score for the short movie “Spielerei”.

The awareness of this idea has been growing since the beginning of the Sixties, with great thanks to movies like A Fistful of Dollars and popular bands like Pink Floyd. Sound can support an image or a picture and sound is able to control an atmosphere. Not only from a cultural perspective, but also in a fundamental way. In the West for example, we have the conventional major/minor tone scales that can influence an audience, whereas other parts of the world have their own specific ways of translating emotions to sound and music. It is not expected from the students to learn how to write Beethoven’s 9th or play solo’s like John Coltrane, but it is expected to realize what the consequences are of a decision to put a waltz from Richard Strauss under an action scene.

Students will be introduced to music history. Simple music theory will also take place during the sound design lessons. Getting insight in the possibilities of sound design means that students will be able to push a concept further, and eventually create higher quality products. Sound design and adaptive music is everywhere, be it in a television commercial or accompanying an arts exposition. It is important to watch movies and commercials and analyze parameters such as time and space, and how layers of sound build up tension. One of the students’ assignments is to brief a virtual sound designer by describing him exactly what to do with a specific movie scene. In other words, students select one minute out of a movie, and write down a concept for sound. After doing so, they are expected to create this atmosphere themselves, by producing sound effects and synchronizing these to picture. In a practical sense, students will learn about music technology tools and techniques by working with production software. This will lead to a deep understanding of the possibilities that sound design has to offer. Some students will be enthusiastic enough to continue working with digital music tools in the future, and maybe even become great sound designers themselves! These opportunities and facilities are all present at the KABK.

After obtaining this knowledge, the focus will go to the use of sound in cinema and TV commercials. Some classic movies will be analysed, and modern commercials will be discussed. At the end of the semester, the students will work on a final assignment, individually or in pairs. This assignment will be based upon a student’s personal interests and ambitions, under guidance of the tutor. This is due to the interests of each single student being so different and diverse from his or her classmates. It is therefore desired to offer a learning curve that is geared towards each individual.

Illustration has a unique ability to overcome the 1rst year, 1rst and 2nd semester limitations of reality. It can give visible form and personality to intangible concepts, the ideas for which there are few or no photographic alternatives. The program will examine these qualities at a high tempo, exploring the fields of drawing/sketching/ illustration in their various forms. The assignments advance gradually from short practical introductions to deeper and longer projects. The shorter assignments address subjects like composition, perspective drawing, simplifying/ deconstructing of an image, challenging the medium drawing by finding solutions for expressing invisible concepts like time, movement and weight in a drawing. The first lessons are aiming to teach the basic techniques of drawing, which the students will later be able to practice in the following longer projects. In the longer projects, students will be motivated to learn what their personal qualities are, and how they can present their ideas. Several of them will link directly with companies outside of the Academywalls. This confrontation with ideas and values of the outside-world will bring the student to a critical way of thinking and reflecting on his/her work.

Making a Booklet-in-a-day

16 November 2006 Photo’s by Irad

A magazine made democratically by the students. The project started with looking and studying modern european illustrators and drawers for inspiration. In the afternoon, each one of the students had to work on their individual design/drawings and later, in a group discussion, they had to agree on the lay out and design for the booklet . This became an exercise in thinking and analyzing the combination of different images that together work as a whole and become an abstract story. The fact that the project was done inside a time frame, gave the participants the possibility to enjoy getting fast results and a finished product in one day.

Marco de Boer Marco de Boer is Creative Director with Artmiks [image builders]. It all began with puree.nl seven years ago. Since then, Artmiks has proven that communication is not a one-way street. Artmiks earned its right to exist in both on- and off-line communication across the Netherlands, surprising substantial clients such as Reed Elsevier, Heineken Beer and Unilever with innovative web concepts. Yet Artmiks is also known for more rebellious projects such as tellanamericantovote.com, marryyourpet.com and SoundAds. Marco co-founded Artmiks just over ten years ago, ‘I like to stretch the limits of communication within any project. The idea is to get the receiver immersed into the story rather than approach them as a passive reader or just a spectator. What’s the use of creating something if the audience doesn't feel anything?’ He was a member of the International Cannes Lions Jury and he currently became board member of the Dutch Art Directors Association (ADCN). www.artmiks.nl/ www.adcn.nl/ www.halloacademie.nl/

reality

1rst year, 2nd semester

An idea can be just an original thought. It can be images or words. The idea can become a concept and a convincing story. But, then, will the idea ever become reality? Is it really possible? Would you really want the idea to happen? Why? What to do with all the ideas related to your original idea? How great do you want your idea to become? For whom? Many ideas need the help of others, a clear scope, a good plan, proper research, some money, patience and perseverance to become real. In this course students learn to deal with important aspects of reality they can encounter when creating an idea in reality. The class will work on an idea as a team and students will explore the realisation of an individual idea.

Examination Individual assignment, group assignment, attendance

Semester Second

Required readings Course handouts

Course goals • Get used to consider and set objectives relating to an idea, be it personal, artistic, societal, political or commercial • Experience how design principles can be an important guide during concept development, design and implementation • Get basic understanding of key aspects of idea realisation, including project identity and branding, propositions, scoping and planning, organisation, sourcing, communication, legal matters, budgeting, finance and PR • Learn to define and get access to the resources and competencies needed for an idea, deciding what to do yourself and where to involve others • Acquire some specific practical modelling skills, e.g. prioritising, scoping, planning, budgeting • Get a greater sense of reality and learn to work with estimates and assumptions • Learn how some real political or social initiatives and start-up companies came about

Practice class Yes

Deliverables • Group idea created in reality, with all related deliverables, including a website • Concept/scope/plan for an individual idea (realisation optional) Course structure and requirements The first classes (dubbed ‘Phase I, Exploration’) will focus on exploring, scoping, testing and planning an idea. Students choose an idea to work on as a group, explore the idea and agree why and how to take it on. The class agrees on individual research assignments, covering all aspects of the idea in reality. Students/teams share findings and as it becomes more clear what needs to be done the class develops the scope and plan for the realisation of the idea. The class agrees on the organisation, responsibilities, resources and budget for the next phase.

In Phase III (‘Launch’) there is no way back. The class makes all the final preps and launches the idea. During Phase II and III students work on a concept/scope/ plan for their own idea. Number of classes 10 classes of 5 hours each

The ‘Pool of Masterminds’ is a ever-expanding group of people from outside the Royal Academy of Art. What all these people have in common is an endless passion and drive for what they do. So much, that they don’t mind sharing their knowledge with a new breed of designers. Because they understand the relevance of passing on knowledge and know that they themselves can create new ideas just as easily as sharing them. The Pool consists of a wide variety of creative people like designers, architects, illustrators, writers, journalists, artists, movie makers, marketing and advertising professionals to even lawyers. The goal of the Pool is to inspire, motivate, irritate and challenge the students. Some Masterminds do that actively by teaching, giving lectures or masterclasses, some just by supporting I/M/D which can open doors that normally would remain closed.

Jorn Bartlema & Martijn Tamboer A time well spent.

Hanneke Bannink After working in the music industry for eight years Hanneke Bannink joined the Amsterdam based lawfirm Van Kaam advocaten in 1999. Van Kaam advocaten is entirely dedicated to media- and intellectual property law. Hanneke works for clients in fields such as design, media and music, both as a litigator as well as a business lawyer. Hanneke is a committee member of Stichting Entertainment Groep, a knowledge network for professionals in the entertainment industry. She also finds time to (guest) lecture at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Royal Academy of Art The Hague, Music Management InHolland Haarlem and Fontys Tilburg and Conservatorium Amsterdam.

The introduction of the Philips p2000 home pc was a was a turning point: all the tools to unleash creativity bundled in one tiny box with a black&green screen. Although very limited, the power of the little computer was pushed to its limits. Spreadsheets became video animations, the 4 bit audio-interface the foundation for his first ever symphony.

Martijn and Jorn met at ..,staat creative statements and spent their first day together on a Nike international retail case; a team was born. With strong creative and strategic minds together they focus on brand relevance and are able to think in a broad range of executions, from campaigns and events, to books and interiors. Ever since Martijn was given a soldering iron at the age of four (to great dislike of his mother) Martijn's life was all about creating. Exploring the magical world of washing machines, floppy disks and VCR-players. Remodelling the existing world, realising his own. While others were playing their fair game of hide and seek, the odd boy was creating lush soundscapes using modified tape recorders and worn 80's records. Although never quite understood, performing for a select and very patient audience, gave him the ability to further develop his creative skills.

Aged 16 Martijn directed his first ever video clip to accompany his solo record which was published in a very limited edition of only two copies, sold out in advance. In the years that followed Martijn discovered late 18th century Russian poetry, the internet and girls on the internet which kept him busy for a couple of years. After high school Martijn was educated in graphic design, artdirection and visual communication. He worked for various clients and agencies on a freelance basis before joining ...,staat in 2005. To this day Martijn's life is still about creating worlds: light-music-soundart-science-installation-advertising-design-video-concept-worlds. Jorn studied political science at the University of Amsterdam and the HalloŠ Academy for Applied Creativity. After working several years in marketing, he started at ...,staat as conceptmaker and copywriter in 2004. That's when his life took a new direction: he met Martijn. Jorn's bio is short because Martijn paid him ₏1000,- to use his space for the prepublication of his life story. Martijn and Jorn work as concept creatives at ...,staat creative statements and are founders of everything agency (agency for the non-existing). www.staatamsterdam.nl/

Artmiks earned its right to exist in both on- and off-line communication across the Netherlands, surprising substantial clients such as Reed Elsevier, Heineken Beer and Unilever with innovative web concepts. Yet Artmiks is also known for more rebellious projects such as tellanamericantovote.com, marryyourpet.com and SoundAds. Marco co-founded Artmiks just over ten years ago, ‘I like to stretch the limits of communication within any project. The idea is to get the receiver immersed into the story rather than approach them as a passive reader or just a spectator. What’s the use of creating something if the audience doesn't feel anything?’ He was a member of the International Cannes Lions Jury and he currently became board member of the Dutch Art Directors Association (ADCN).

Tenacious. This is the quality that best describes Marcel Jansen (1968). He is the creative director of WAACS, the maverick designstudio that is best known for its design of the Philips Senseo coffee maker.

Bernardus school / Grafische School / RTO | 1988 – 1993 > Printer / Silk screen printer / Assistent Artdirector / Diploma Artdirection Academy of visual arts Utrecht | 1993 – 2000 > Artdirector at Voorheen Jam, Vaz Dias and 5 years Publicis.

From their studio next to Rotterdam Central Station the WAACS team works on innovation and user-experience for leading (or ambitious) companies, such as Microsoft’s Windows and xBox group in Redmond USA, Indesit in Fabriano Italy, Henkel in Düsseldorf Germany and Cadac from Johannesburg South Africa. Jansen considers himself holistic in his approach, an all-rounder whose concerns and interests embrace more than just aesthetics: it’s the complete user-experience that is important. Jansen’s dogged disposition makes him a good team player (preferably if he’s the one in the lead). And he’s not one to go by the book. Improvisation is a phenomenal source of creativity, one that is sorely undervalued in northern Europe.Before he joined WAACS in 1997 he worked as designer for Bosch-Siemens in Germany and with Fernando Merino in Barcelona. www.waacs.nl/

Alrik Koudenburg Alrik Koudenburg (1976) is an curious, analytic, resourceful freelance design director based in Amsterdam. Working both for clients directly and for several design agencies, where he is mainly responsible for concept and strategy. He enjoys making first drafts and launching ideas at the very core of an initiative within different disciplines of design (interior/retail, product design, graphic design /interactive media, events/experiences as well as photography and film). Once the concepts are approved, he often directs a team of creatives to execute it together. Making sure the clients gets what they need, which is’t always what they proposed/asked for. Trying to make clients understand that life rewards people who go beyond who and what they know.

His sense of what is going on at the moment, his passion and his critical eye are his strongest traits. Diversity is what drives him, wheater it’s creating his own tree-tent, a lobby bar for Heineken International or a series of high-end visibility items for the same brand. It makes work feel like playing - creating unique retail objects for Levi’s Europe, a website for Bugaboo International or helping out Nike with the very first Nike Park or a metrowomen fashion event.

In 2001 he moved to Frankfurt and worked there for 4 years. They, Martin and his wife, traveled a lot these years and got to know a lot of places. The place they liked the most was Barcelona. The city, the people, the weather, the food, all the things that make life worth living, they found in Barcelona. So, I learned Spanish and moved to Spain. They now finally settled down and founded a corporation specialised in strategic design and communication. Besides doing design projects they teach in design schools, but also organize design workshops and give lectures. Since 2000 they initiate aswell their own projects. The projects they have released until now are “The One Weekend Book Series”, “Chinese Whisper”, “Poster Series”, “Color Combinations” and “Cover Of The Week”. Besides all these activities Martin does a doctoral research on design at the University of Barcelona. This year he starts with his doctoral thesis, which he will develop in corporation with other european universities. Often designers and academic investigators live in paralel worlds without being able to exchange information, knowlegde and experience. Even though this would mean an enormous enrichment for both fields. His aim is to expand hs investigation and intersect branches as design, sociology, philosophy and economy in order to improve the capabilities of design. www.designby.twopoints.net/ www.projectsby.twopoints.net/ www.theoneweekendbookseries.com/

Since 2005 Moyes has been instrumental in sculpting the cool, hipster visual aesthetic for international record label Modular Recordings with at least one video for each artist on their roster, and a hand full of MTV, MVPA, Australian Dance Music Awards and ARIA awards and nominations for every video.

Over more than thirteen years Mattmo develops medium independent projects. Essential in their work is the exploration of digital technology, the search for the integrety within the technology and emphasizing the soft side if ICT. In their design processes, they do no consessions, because this is crucial within visual communication.

In 2006 Moyes directed Wolfmother’s ‘White Unicorn’ video and masterminded the defaced version of the same clip under the guise of Banditobruce. This generated a huge amount of discussion and interest surrounding a new defacement genre. His stop-action animated video for Softlightes ‘Heart Made of Sound’ was a huge success and has since garnered a lot of worldwide attention. As an animator and live action director, Moyes is able to successfully change his style to suit each project, creating a unique aesthetic out the concept and not the other way around. www.kmoyes.com/ www.thedirectorsbureau.com/

The new media technology contributes to the shaping and understanding of the functioning of our body of thought, our memory, space, time, distance and movement.

Rob Wagemans

Theo van der Vlugt (1957) became copywriter/ conceptmaker in advertising, after a study Linguistics and Literature. He was one of the founding partners in VVSW advertising, and since 1995, he operates as a freelance copywriter/conceptmaker.

After completing his degree in Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences, Ramon worked internationally as a Management Consultant. Furthermore he worked as European CRM Operations Manager for the CRM practice of PricewaterhouseCoopers and later IBM Business Consulting Services.

Rob is co-founder and director of concrete.

He’s one of the very few copywriters who – after many years – still likes the writing part of the profession, while most of senior copywriters only maintain interest in creating concepts and seem to forget the real writing skills. To him it’s a challenge to connect sets of brand-values with the needs of good copy, in a way that different people can act as the voice of a company or a brand, in disciplines as direct mail, websites, packaging, advertising and more. Don’t bother him with the idea that people don’t read anymore and that copy should only be short. The question should be: ‘What do we have to tell them?’ He works with pride and pleasure for Albert Heijn, HEMA, Randstad, Zilveren Kruis Achmea, Ministerie van Justitie, Unie van Landschappen, for advertising agencies and directly for clients.

Ramon is a skilled facilitator for innovation processes and a good public speaker in various languages. He gets very enthusiastic about ‘reducing risk aversion’ and increasing an organisation’s innovative capacity. Ramon is co-author of the book: Creativity Today, the management guide for creativity. At the moment Ramon focuses mainly on the link between operations management and creativity.

FRAME: The great indoors International trade magazine for interior architecture and design focused on retail, exhibition, leisure and workplace design. www.framemag.com Mark - Another Architecture Mark - Another Architecture is a quarterly magazine that injects life into architecture publishing with personal writing, experimental photography and bold graphics. www.mark-magazine.com/ BLEND www.blend.nl/ CODE CODE is a magazine about streetfashion. Fashion can be considered as a reflection of developments in society. That is what makes it interesting to us in any case, not the fact that you need to buy the latest fad to be part of the in-crowd. CODE documents, reports and inspires. It has no ambition to dictate. CODE is a platform for fashion photography with a documentary quality to it. Nowadays, brands are part of modern culture, personal style and for some even identity. Therefore CODE reports on brands. CODE shows clothing as CLOTHING. Stuff that can be worn and makes you look good. CODE is a European fashion magazine. www.code-mag.nl/ FOAM Foam Magazine is an international photography magazine that is published quarterly by Foam_ Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam and Vandejong. It is a distinctive and highly appreciated publication. Foam Magazine serves as an exhibition space that embraces every aspect of photography: from documentary to fashion, from contemporary to historical, from world-famous photographers to young talent.

Each issue features a specific theme that unites six diverse portfolios of 16 pages each. www.foammagazine.nl/ Items Items is the Netherlands’ major professional design magazine. It covers the entire spectrum of design, from graphic design and product design to interaction design and architecture. Items points out trends, scrutinizes important developments and exceptional designs, features pioneers, delves into actual everyday practice of design and reviews many important and outstanding publications. Each issue contains more than 100 beautifully designed, pictureladen pages. http://www.bispublishers.nl/ Items/htm_items/items.htm Graphic | contemporary graphic culture magazine Finding a magazine that accurately picks up on, and authoritatively and convincingly presents the most important trends in today’s international visual culture is an almost impossible task. Yet the need is obvious. Every creative person is readily inspired by groundbreaking and innovative work. Graphic goes in search of such innovation, visits the visual creatives who are changing their disciplines and brings their work to the reader. Graphic signals trends in a wide range of creative disciplines: graphic design, typography, animation, film, photography, illustration, advertisement, art, product design and architecture. A magazine about our thriving ‘graphic’ culture. Not a specialist graphic-design, photography, fashion or art magazine but a magazine aiming to look at contemporary visual arts and the people who create the images of our current visual culture from a new angle. Graphic appears twice a year, an impressive visual guide to convey the reader to the world’s

ultimate creative hotspots. Leafing through Graphic, readers will feel they are visiting all the places they should be, seen all the work they need to see – until the next issue adorns their doormat. Graphic correspondents are based in Europe, Asia and America. Editor in chief is Marc A. Valli, noted in the design world as the founder of Magma, a chain of creative shops/galleries in London and Manchester. https://www.bruil.info/order/index.php?sa=directorder&id= 264&kkp= Dot Dot Dot Since its conception in 2000 DDD has immatured into a jocuserious fanzine-journalorphanage based on true stories deeply concerned with art-design-music-languageliterature-architecture and uptight optipessimistic stoppy/ revelatory ghostwriting by friendly spirits mapping b-sides out-takes pushing for a resolution in bleak midwinter through late summer with local and general aesthetics wound on an ever tightening coil. www.dot-dot-dot.us/ Colors A quarterly magazine that focuses on cultural topics from around the world. www.colorsmagazine.com/ Ad!dict www.addictlab.com/ Communication Arts http://www.commarts.com/CA/ magazine/index.html 032c Monocle Contagious Art Review
