The Type Directors Club is a prominent international organization supporting excellence in typography, both in print and on screen. Founded in 1946 by some of the industry’s leading practitioners, the TDC’s earliest membership included Aaron Burns, Will Burtin, Freeman Craw, Louis Dorfsman, Gene Federico, Edward M. Gottschall, Herb Lubalin, Edward Rondthaler, Bradbury Thompson, and Hermann Zapf. With this solid historical background, the TDC today represents the best of today’s type design and type use.
In recent years, the Type Directors Club has also partnered with the Continuing Education Department of The Cooper Union for Type@Cooper, a program offering a Postgraduate Certificate in Typeface Design.
The TDC's summer exhibition at The Cooper Union features the winners of their 58th annual competitions in Communication Design, Typeface Design and Movie Title Design.
The exhibition is open to the public Monday - Thursday, 10am-5pm.
Located in the 41 Cooper Gallery, located in 41 Cooper Square, on Third Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets.
