Winners

The Type Directors Club, through its annual competitions, recognizes typographic excellence in the design community.

The best way to peruse past winners is to purchase one of our beautifully designed annuals (members receive a free annual each year), but you can see some past winners by clicking the links on the left sidebar. We are continually working to bring more of our past annual content online, but as we have been rewarding excellence for many years, it is no small undertaking.
