Exhibition “Typography”

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.

Exhibition: 21 – 24 Nov 2014, 9 am – 7 pm

Goethe-Institut Hanoi

56-58 Nguyễn Thái Học

Ba Đình, Hà Nội

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.
