From Goethe Institute:
We face typography every day and everywhere, whether it is in our daily life or at work, on a billboard, in the newspaper or on the smartphone. “Whether the letters are small or big, bold or with serifs, whether they are red or green, all the things that we see will have an impact on us unwittingly and we will memorize them without noticing it”, said Erik Spiekermann (typographer and design legend, awarded with the TDC Medal 2011). That is the reason why we should have a more wittingly look at typography. A perfect occasion to do this is the annual exhibition of the Type Directors Club, where the best and most interesting designs of the year in the field of typography and graphic design will be shown.
The Type Directors Club invites everyone to attend a public showing of its sixtieth annual typography exhibit, TDC60, and the selections of the annual typeface design competition, TDC 2014 at the Goethe Institute Hanoi.
There was a total of over 2000 entries from 43 countries, 209 works from 18 countries were selected. Germany with its more than 40 honorees ranked in a high position in comparison to the other international participants this year. The winners will also be included in 7 exhibitions touring cities in the United States, Canada, France, England, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Russia, Spain, Thailand, Taiwan and Vietnam.
The annual awards competition of the Type Directors Club presents the best typographic designs in the world. Long a favorite of the design community, the awards are renowned for the quality of their selections and the accompanying annual book published by the TDC.
The exhibition addresses all professionals and students who work in the field of graphic design, advertising, marketing, communication, multimedia, publisher, education and who are interested in the written word.
