Type Directors Club

Challenge The Type Directors Club (TDC) is a 65-year-old organization that promotes excellence in Typography. The club tasked us with inspiring designers to enter its 60th International Typography Competition. Our strategy, “Find the future of form,” represented the desire of both the TDC and the young competitors it was trying to attract. The TDC wants to discover and award only the most remarkable typographic expressions. Young designers yearn to create breakthrough work that rises above the fog of convention. For our campaign, “A New Generation,” we built a bespoke software application that generated typographic expressions based on continually shifting influences of real-time data streams. A microsite let designers everywhere use this software to generate their own unique expressions. Our short documentary film enriched the campaign by asking design luminaries, “What happens when typography becomes conscious?” In total, “A New Generation” was a first-of-its-kind convergence of data visualization, context-aware computing, consumer co-creation, branded content, and physical computation.
