The Type Directors Club presents the latest 2015 winning selections in a new traveling exhibition.

TYPO Berlin starts today. As a prominent part of the conference, The Type Directors Club of New York is exhibiting its 2015 award winning entries at Aufbau Haus, about a three mile walk or a short taxi ride from the conference venue. TYPO attendees were able to see a sneak peek and snap these photos during last night’s vernissage, (or if you had to look up the word like I just did), private gallery viewing.

As we were pleased to announce last Friday, among the winning work exhibited was ours: this site—the typography and site design of fontshop.com. In addition to our main site, the microsite for Jakob Runge’s recently released FF Franziska made by creative members of our Berlin office was also selected to receive the prestigious “Certificate of Typographic Excellence.”. If you haven’t yet, be sure to have a look.

If you’re in Berlin over the coming weeks, stop by and see the exhibition, which opens to the public this Sunday at Aufbau Haus, and remains open until June 9th. If you miss it, the show will likely be passing through your part of the world, with upcoming exhibitions planned for cities in Canada, China, England, France, Japan, Poland, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, The United States, and Vietnam. That includes a parallel exhibit currently on display in Valencia. Stay notified of future TDC61 exhibit openings as they are announced by reading TDC’s latest news.

You can also find more information about the competition and the jury behind it on typotalks.com.
