Type Directors Club


Through membership, mentorship, and involvement in the type community as a whole, these groups bring the resources of the Type Directors Club to students’ fingertips. Members can attend any type directors club lecture, classes or special events at membership price as well as being able to work together to create our own events at Cooper Union. These events include visiting designer lectures, studio visits, portfolio reviews and much more.


Type Directors Club is an international organization for all people who are devoted to excellence in typography, both in print and on screen. Founded in 1946, today’s TDC is involved in all contemporary areas of typography and design, and welcomes graphic designers, art directors, editors, multimedia professionals, students, entrepreneurs, and all who have an interest in type: in advertising, communications, education, marketing, and publishing.
