International graphic design at its best from the Type Directors Club

The exhibition features the work of the top cats in communication design selected by an international jury out of entries from around the world. The best of posters, books, editorial spreads, packaging, environmental installations, logos, identities, typeface design, and more will be on display in the Schelfhaudt Gallery from Wednesday 5 September until Saturday 6 October.

“This annual event at SASD (Shintaro Akatsu School of Design) is an inspiration and spur to greater design for our students – and a great marker for the current state of graphic design,” says Prof. Gary Munch, acting chair of graphic design at SASD at UB. “Being at the forefront of design is something the TDC is known for and we’re especially proud at SASD to be adding this important collection to our teaching archives.”

This event is free and open to the public.
