The primary way that we celebrate quality is through our annual competitions in which we highlight the best of the best typographic work in communication and typeface design internationally.
Each year, we encourage a broad range of designers to enter our competition, have their work considered by an international panel of type experts, and hopefully have that work chosen for inclusion in a prestigious collection of published and exhibited works ranked “the best in the world.”
For more than 70 years, the Type Directors Club has united and celebrated typographic leaders from around the world. The primary way that we celebrate quality is through our annual competitions in which we highlight the best of the best typographic work in communication and typeface design from studios and individuals in the United States and internationally.
