TDC65: Last call to enter Type Directors Club best typography competition
Type Directors Club, the leading international organization which supports excellence in typography has announced its last call for entries for TDC65 The World’s Best Typography competition.

In short, here’s what happens: An international jury of type designers, graphic designers, art directors, and illustrators convenes in January to select over 250 works that represent the “world’s best type and typography”.
The winning entries, which will be published in the 40th edition of the Type Directors Club annual, The World’s Best Typography, and will be shown in a travelling exhibition that will tour more than 35 cities throughout the world.
