The World’s Best Typography exhibition on display in Santander, Spain through November 15, features the winning work of the Type Director Club’s 64th Annual Communications Design and 2018 Typeface Design competitions.

TDC64 is on display at the Cantabria Central Library as the kick-off to the region’s fourth annual TIPOS graphic design competition, which takes place later this year.  This free exhibition has previously toured to Tokyo, Seoul, Warsaw, New York, Antwerp, Ontario, Saigon, and Auckland. TDC64’s tour through Spain has included Barcelona, Sabadell, Soria, Madrid, and Amilla, Granada.

As part of TIPOS, this show is sponsored by the Government of Cantabria and the Santander Creative Foundation, the cultural foundation formed by the Santander Council, Cantabria Government, Fundación Botin, Banco Santander, Cantabria University and Menéndez Pelayo International University to promote cultural activity.

The exhibition displays typography in a wide range of categories including books, posters, magazines, fanzines, multimedia applications, and animation pieces from many countries including the United States, France, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, the People’s Republic of China, South Korea, and others.
