Type Directors Club is back.
This short-run exhibition celebrating the best of international type design returns to Objectspace thanks to creative agency Osborne Shiwan.
The annual Type Directors Club awards recognise design excellence and typographic innovation, with the exhibition traveling to cities across America, Asia and Europe, and now to Tāmaki Makaurau for its Aotearoa showing.
For this round, 202 winners were selected from 63 countries by a diverse jury of leading designers and type designers, reflecting TDC’s ongoing commitment to increase the level of diversity and representation in all aspects of its programming, membership, and on its Advisory Board.
TDC68: The World's Best Typography brings together hundreds of pieces from entrants into the TDC awards including Apple, The New York Times, Pentagram, Mucho and Klim Type Foundry, who are generously sponsoring this exhibition alongside Osborne Shiwan and Phantom Billstickers.
Opening festivities thanks to Scapegrace, Goodsh*t Soda, Liberty Brewing, Black Estate, Greystone Wines, Almighty Drinks and Daily Bread.
