Held since 1954, the TDC competition sets the high mark for graphic design, incorporating innovative typography in all fields of design: posters, books, packaging, editorial, apparel, motion graphics, branding, calendars, exhibit design, and others.

This year’s show features more than 225 works in graphic design and comprises the juried selections from two competitions in typography and type design that are organized by the Type Directors Club of New York.

“The TDC show brings together graphic design work by many of the world’s best designers, both new and experienced. They explore all sorts of directions: humorous, serious, forceful, gentle, sly, and up-prong. Seeing the works is an inspiration for anyone involved with design,” said gallery director Gary Munch.
