TDC 2013: FF Chartwell
Travis Kochel’s groundbreaking typeface FF Chartwell that transforms strings of numbers into graphs and charts has been awarded one of the most highly regarded accolades in the typographic world – a ‘Certificate of Excellence in Typeface Design’ by the TDC.
The TDC (Type Directors Club) was founded in 1946 by some of the foremost leaders from the world of typography. Their mission is to support excellence in typography on screen and in print. Each year they run two annual type competitions, one for the use of type in design and the other for typeface design.
This year, there were almost 200 entries submitted from 33 countries and only 14 winners, so we are absolutely delighted that FF Chartwell and Travis have been recognized. The winning entries will be presented at the TDC Awards Exhibition in New York this summer. They will also be included in a further 7 exhibitions that will visit the United States, Canada, England, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Russia, Spain, South Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam.
