Type Directors Club (TDC) international exhibition will be opened for public viewing this Friday at the HCMC Exhibition House in HCMC’s District 1, featuring more than 200 award-winning entries of the TDC’s annual international typeface design competition.

A representative of the Goethe-Institute in Vietnam told the Daily in an email that more than 1,700 artworks from 50 countries across the globe had entered this year’s competition, and more than 200 entries had claimed prizes.
On display is a selection of this year’s contributions to the world of typography and graphic design selected by an international jury panel of top designers.

Visitors to the exhibition will have the opportunity to gain hands-on knowledge in the art of typography covering a wide range of categories including books, posters, corporate branding, logos, web graphics, TV titles and magazines from many countries including the U.S., Germany, China, Japan, and South Korea among others.

The event is especially aimed for professionals and students working in graphic design, advertising, marketing, communication, multimedia, publishing and education, as well as those interested in typography.

Organized by Richard Moore Associates, representative of TDC in Vietnam, in partnership with FPT Arena, Ton Duc Thang University and the Goethe-Institute, the event will last until December 12 at the HCMC Exhibition House, 92 Le Thanh Ton Street in District 1, HCMC.

Founded in 1946 by some of the industry’s leading designers, the Type Directors Club has become the prestigious international organization whose purpose is to support typography both in print and on screen.
