Chosen from over 2,000 entries from countries all around the globe, these award-winning designs are the focus of a new exhibition - TDC 60th - which was inaugurated in New York and has since travelled to the UK, France, Germany, Russia, Spain, Canada, South Korea, Hong Kong, Japan and Vietnam. Now in its 60th year, this annual event has made its way to Thailand for the very first time.

On display are 324 of the best Communication and Type designs from 43 countries. Not only have these winning designs been viewed by audiences all over the world, they have also appeared in the publication Typology Annual, where they represent the latest stage in the long, proud history of typographical design.

The exhibition is part of TCDC's ongoing efforts to bring contemporary typographical design to the attention of the Thai public. It shines a light on the creative and innovative ways that typography is being conceived and used today. It reveals the limitless techniques, materials and designs available to the world's leading contemporary designers.

About TDC
The Type Directors Club of New York (TDC) was founded to promote and support developments in typographical design and to educate up-and-coming designers in the field to become industry leaders in the future. TDC was the brainchild of some of the major pioneers in typographical design, including Aaron Burns, Will Burtin, Freeman Craw, Louis Dorfsman, Gene Federico, Edward M. Gottschall, Herb Lubalin, Edward Rondthaller, Bradbury Thompson and Herman Zapf.

From these solid beginnings, TDC has grown over the years to be today's premier representative of the art of typographical design. Its numerous activities include exhibitions, workshops and an annual typographical competition.
