The Type Directors Club 2013 Exhibition showcases the winners of the TDC's annual communication and typeface design competitions, as well as student scholarship winners. This exhibition, with work from 19 countries, is a snapshot of design in our time. Included are an impressive variety of styles, from the austere modernist revival of Mike Joyce’s Swissted posters, to the nineteenth-century complexity of a law firm identity by the office of Kevin Cantrell.
The TDC was founded in 1946 and its annual competitions, which began in 1955, have grown into the world’s largest competitions dedicated to excellence in the use of typography. This year marks the TDC’s 59th communication design competition and its sixteenth typeface design competition.
