We love type. We love looking at it, we love making it—and we love that we got to do some of both when we brought the Tokyo Type Directors Club (TTDC) to Minneapolis.
The exhibition, on display October 11-November 7, 2017 at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD), featured a curated selection of work from the 2015, 2016, and 2017 TTDC competitions. The show coincided with the AIGA National Design Conference in Minneapolis, and it was co-hosted by WDW, MCAD, and AIGA Minnesota. Our design for the event graphics featured a custom typographic illustration and a bespoke supporting typeface which we created specifically for this project. The postcard was printed on Neenah Classic Stipple paper, with offset printing by Franklin Press and embossing and foil stamping by Studio on Fire.
Special thanks to Kerry Morgan at MCAD and Katrin Loss at AIGA Minnesota for all of the work they put into making this event a success, to Erik Brandt and Jon Forss for their help in curating the exhibition, and to Kim Shannon at Neenah Paper, Bryan Franklin at Franklin Press, and Ben Levitz at Studio on Fire for their generous paper and print sponsorships. Thanks also to everyone who attended the opening reception. It was a night to remember!
