The Type Directors Club of NY reinvents itself. The TDC book as a classic remains! Excellent typography, nothing else.

Design competitions are now a dime a dozen, but one shines as a beacon in the world of typography: that of the Type Directors Club of New York. Founded in 1946 as an informal lunch meeting of typo-savvy agency creatives, the TDC focuses on judging typographic quality. A TDC Award accelerates graphic design careers. The 41st Annual of the Type Directors Club showcases the latest winning work from book design to packaging and posters to exhibition concepts, interactive applications, and corporate design.

It is a trend seismograph, inspiration and yardstick, documentation of zeitgeist and quality timelessness in design. Because quality craftsmanship unites the works that make it into the book. Cutting edge is allowed, but without skill it is worth nothing. Regularly leafing through the book sharpens your eye for detail—and inspires your work.

The TDC is unbiased and unprejudiced. Simply the best wins!
