Aka the students. During the Open Day, visitors got the opportunity to become a ‘Local’ themselves.

Identity + Campaign
Royal Academy of Art, The Hague

For the annually open day of Royal Academy of Art The Hague (KABK), we created the campaign based around the idea of it being a community and its internationality. We decided to call it The State of The Art, as a play on words but also to raise the question if a state can still exist. During this day and age, were are the boundaries? And when are you a local?

Meet the Locals !! Get High on Research !! Double Rainbows !! Explore new Horizons !! Spectacular views !! Crossing borders !!

We’ve supplied every student and teachers with ‘LOCAL sweaters’, every visitor with a foldable map with essential information for every department, bags in the souvenirsshop, navigation through-out the academy, and last but not least; a flag-waving musical supported walk from central station to the academy!
