Post-competition exhibition of the 63rd annual exhibition of the most interesting projects selected as a result of the competition for the best typographic design of the year - TDC 63 and 20th annual competition for the best typeface - TDC 2017.

The TDC (Type Directors Club) is a professional nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide typographic education to the international visual communication community.

The dominant feature of the exhibition is text-based design. At the exhibition, we will see examples of graphic designs created for the Internet, book designs, magazines, brand and industry insights, logos, advertisements, posters, packaging and video typography as well as winning prints that have gained industrial recognition over the past year.

The selection and evaluation of the TDC 63 (Type Directors Club 63) graphic design projects, based on over 1800 entries from 52 countries, was made by Joe Newton (Anderson + Newton Design) and Angela Voulganas (The Graphic Office), as well as the juries representing Spencer Charles Design, Red Peak Group, Amazon, Sudtipos, Uppercase, FrenchType. More than 200 new typefaces have been submitted to the Type Design Competition, out of which the jury, led by Dan Rhatigan of Adobe Systems, has selected the top 15.

Winning projects are presented at eight traveling exhibitions, which began in the summer of 2015 in New York. The exhibition is watched in the USA, Canada, in selected cities around the world such as Seoul, Hanoi, Hong Kong, Taipei, London, Warsaw and others in Spain, Poland, France, Germany, Japan and Russia and presented in industry conferences such as ATypI, TypeCon, or Adobe MAX. Polish-Japanese Information Technology Academy is the sole partner of TDC in Poland. The Academy also runs an archive of previous editions and co-organizes its exhibitions throughout the country.
