World’s Best Typography—The Type Directors Club 64th Annual Typography Exhibition

July 18, 2018 @ 9:00 am - August 10, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

From July 18 through August 10, 2018, The Type Directors Club and The Cooper Union are debuting the World’s Best Typography exhibition, which features the winning work of the Type Director Club’s 64th Annual Communications Design and 2018 Typeface Design competitions.

This year’s annual juried exhibition includes over 280 pieces work that features typography in a wide range of categories including books, posters, corporate branding, logos, web graphics, film and TV titles, products, and magazines.

Professional and student communications design work from many countries is on display, including the United States, France, Germany, Japan, Spain, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, the People’s Republic of China, South Korea, and others.

A special feature of the exhibition is the opportunity for visitors to experience the physical presence of the works up close, pick up the books, examine the exquisite bookbinding, touch the packaging, and look through the printed magazines.

Read about the book that received the Best in Show award here, and the award-winning student work here.

The exhibition is on display in the downstairs gallery at 41 Cooper Square.

Admission is free, open Monday to Saturday 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, and Sunday noon to 6:00 pm.
