Dom Słów-Izba Drukarstwa (House of Words-Print House) is hosting the 65th Annual Communications Design and 2019 Typeface Design Exhibitions of Type Directors Club in Lublin, Poland.
The “World’s Best Typography” exhibition includes over 280 selections of winning work from the TDC’s annual international typeface design competition and communication design competition selected by an international jury of top designers.
The exhibition displays typography in a wide range of categories including books, posters, corporate branding, logos, web graphics, film and TV titles, products, and magazines 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.
This TDC65 exhibition comes to Lublin from its debuts in Tokyo, Seoul, Warsaw, Lille, Barcelona, Nagoya, Minneapolis, New York, Osaka, Taipei, and Ontario.
The House of Words is an interdisciplinary institution focusing on art and education, and a part of the Grodzka Gate – NN Theatre Centre. The mission of the House of Words, which has operated on this Lublin site since 2008, is to emphasize the meaning of spoken and printed word in a cultural and social context, including the importance of “free speech” in the processes of social and political change. House of Words holds events to popularize the traditional book manufacture process (print, graphic design, bookbinding, and typography) to promote reading and literacy.
The exhibition is open to the public, Monday through Friday, November 22 – December 27, 2019.
