The TDC celebrates and amplifies the undeniable power of typography. We are a global community united by the shared belief that type drives culture and culture drives type

Established in 1946, the TDC today curates a calendar of typographic intrigues designed to:

—build a community through public events and platforms
—support the growth of students and early career professionals
—recognize excellence in type design across the world.

In connection with our landmark yearly competitions, we produce and publish a Typography Annual and coordinate eight traveling exhibits of award-winning work. We host and sponsor numerous events—conferences, courses, workshops, exhibitions, and frequent Type Salons—both in our New York City home and at supportive institutions near and far.
Graphic designers, art directors, editors, media makers, students, and entrepreneurs, anyone who loves typography, letterforms, and the written word… join us.
