The tutors of the Master Design have all linked professional practices, from which they bring in current experiences and knowledge. As a team, they work closely together on curriculum and assessments, keeping a keen eye on changes which are necessary for the students to get the most out of their design research.

Design Research

Jop Japenga is Research Director with Afdeling Buitengewone Zaken, a Rotterdam based studio for social design; he combines an experimental approach with critical thinking.

Sietske Klooster is embodied designer, researcher at the TU Eindhoven and farrier – which for her is as much design as any of her other activities.


Meike Eggers is visual artist (with an eye for social contexts), writer (with a zest for humanist scifi) and using creative writing to get to the core of who we are.

Moniek Driesse is graphic designer turned researcher, reflecting visually in living atlasses and having just recently finished her PhD on how water forms human stories an on how humans tell water stories.

New Practices

Harma Staal is a long time graphic designer & tutor, who also works for the Research Station of the WdKA, the school under which the PZI falls.

Vasilis van Gemert is a critical thinker in web design who loves nonsense and is an educator at heart.

Course Leader

Dr. Michelle Kasprzak is a curator, writer, artist, and educator. Her doctoral work investigated the role of art and design in processes of care, maintenance, and repair. In addition to leading the Master Design, her postdoc work focuses on two projects: analysing the design and construction of landscape to create renewed ecosystems (Painting with Bulldozers); and examining the role of art and design in public dialogues on scientific innovation (De DNA Dialogen, NWO-funded project).


The Master Design works within an (international) network:

HKB Master Design for collaborations between tutors and students

Follows closely on:

Social Design Showdown, an initiative of former tutor Jan Belon

Information Design Conference, in which former tutor Linda Meijer-Wassenaar is board member

St. Verhalende Journalistiek/Narrative Journalism Foundation, for new ways of research led storytelling

Design Research Society, for international developments on design research

And of course all its students & alumni!
