For the second year in New Zealand!
The Type Directors Club is pleased to announce that its World’s Best Typography exhibition is coming to Auckland, New Zealand for the second time, courtesy of award-winning creative agency Osborne Shiwan and Portfolio Recruitment.
Direct from its New York showing, TDC65 Auckland will showcase an exciting and culturally diverse range of award-winning work chosen by some of the design industry’s most recognised mentors, creative innovators and thought-leaders. The exhibition will be on display at Auckland University of Technology’s St Paul St Gallery Two from March 4 to 28.
Lloyd Osborne, Creative Director at Osborne Shiwan, thinks this is the best reflection of current typographic excellence at an international level. “This competition received thousands of submissions that were narrowed to just 253 examples from over 38 countries. There is a wealth of diversity on show, through language, culture, and type design. As alumni, we are proud to bring TDC65 to AUT.”
As well as communication design, TDC65 Auckland will showcase typefaces chosen from a record 350 submissions, including ‘Serif UI’ by the Apple Design Team and ‘Heldane’ by New Zealand based Kris Sowersby at Klim.
The exhibition is free and open to the public. Hours: Tuesday through Friday, 10am – 5pm.
