Event description

Description

The Type Directors Club is pleased to announce a
celebration of its 70th anniversary, a day-long series
of typography talks and an evening reception.

TDC Medalists and former TDC presidents will speak
about their careers, their views on the typographic
professions, memories of the Type Directors Club, and
the future of type. Speakers will include medalists Ed
Benguiat, Louise Fili, Paula Scher, and Erik Spiekermann,
as well as former TDC presidents Allan Haley and Charles
Nix.

The day will close with a 6 pm cocktail reception at the
SVA Theater.

Twenty-nine Type Directors Club Medals have been
awarded in recognition of outstanding contributions to
typography. Hermann Zapf won the first in 1967 and
Emigre (Zuzana Licko and Rudy VanderLans) was honored
with the most recent in 2016.

The Type Directors Club was formed in 1946 in New
York City and is a professional organization dedicated to
educating its international membership and the
graphic arts and design communities about the value of
typography in communication.
