About the Tokyo Type Directors Club
Formed in 1987, the Tokyo Type Directors Club (Tokyo TDC) has a vision to firmly establish the field of "typedirection." This discipline involves extensive and deep research into the visual expressions of letters, going far beyond conventional character designing. The primary activities of the club include an annual international design competition, the publication of the yearbook and the production of exhibitions. Embracing free-flowing ideas, flexible rules and a perceptive eye for quality, we hope to continue to provide an environment that inspires and nurtures new artistic energy. www.tdctokyo.org
