HCM City (VNA) - More than 200 award-winning typography and graphic designs are being showcased at the 63rd International Typography Exhibition held in Ho Chi Minh City.

The opening ceremony of the exhibition was held on December 8 by the New York Type Directors Club (TDC), in collaboration with Ton Duc Thang University, FPT Arena, and the Goethe Institute – the Germany’s cultural institute.

The annual International Typography Exhibition aims to bring together those who love fonts and text applications in various media such as brand communication, advertising, education, marketing, publication and film titles.

The best typography works have won awards at the year’s annual TDC competition for both communication and typeface design, which attracted around 1,700 entries from 50 countries.

The designs were in a large range of categories, including books, posters, corporate branding, logos, web graphics, film and TV titles, products and magazines.

The exhibition has also been held in many other countries around the world, such as the US, South Korea, Japan, Poland, Russia, Thailand, Spain, Germany, and others.

The TDC has been the world’s leading international organisation for support and recognition of excellence in typography, both in print and on screen, for many years.

The TDC is a good opportunity for graphic designers to meet with industry professionals from around the world.

The exhibition opens to the public from 9am to 6pm until December 12 at the HCM City Exhibition House at 92 Le Thanh Ton Street in District 1. 

Organisers expect to attract thousands of visitors at the exhibition this year. -VNA
