TDC Announces Fall Workshop Line-up

Type Directors Club has just announced its line-up of New York City workshops to offer illustrators, type fanatics, calligraphers, letterers, and aspiring type designers an opportunity to spend some time with experts who can inspire, encourage, and provide insider tips to take skills to the next level.
