Every year, the SASD Graphic Design department brings to the Schelfhaudt Gallery an extraordinary display of communication design, typography, and type design. This year is new and different in the best ways — new works by world-class graphic designers, new works by new practitioners of design working in posters, books, identities, interactive, environmental, editorial, and work by graphic design students.
The Schelfhaudt Gallery is open to the public Tuesday–Friday from 11am to 4pm, and on Saturday from noon to 4pm. The TDC64 exhibition will be on view until January 11, but visitors are advised to call ahead to make arrangements to see the exhibition on weekends and during the school’s annual winter break (Friday, December 12, 2019 through Saturday, January 11, 2020).
This TDC64 exhibition opens in Bridgeport, Connecticut following the exhibition’s tour to Tokyo, Seoul, Warsaw, New York, Antwerp, Ontario, Saigon, Auckland and several cities in Spain, including Barcelona, Sabadell, Soria,and Madrid. TDC64 is finishing its tour at the University of Bridgeport, where the works become part of the SASD GD Archives.
The exhibition displays typography in a wide range of categories including books, posters, magazines, fanzines, multimedia applications, and animation pieces from many countries including the United States, France, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, the People’s Republic of China, South Korea, and others.
The exhibition features eighteen typeface design winners selected from over 225 entries from 39 countries. Review the list of award-winning typeface designs from 2018 here, and read more about these Judges’ Choices:
