Typography 30

Posted on October 6, 2009. Filed under: 1 |

For all the type lovers out there, here’s a sneak peak at the cover of  Typography 30. Released every December, this book showcases the winners of the annual Type Directors Club competition.

100109 TDC book rainbow foilEach year, the Type Directors Club selects one well-known designer to create the book, and gives them tremendous  freedom to design it as they see fit.  (In fact, Carin Goldberg, the designer of TYPOGRAPHY 20, told STEP magazine in 2007: ‘The beauty and the curse of this job is the creative freedom you are given’. )

For over ten years, Crescent Hill Books has produced this 300+ page book showcasing the year’s best typographic achievements in magazines, stationery, books, web graphics and more.

This is one of our favorite annual projects because it allows us to work with designers such as Alexander Isley (who designed Typography 24) and Emily Oberman, who designed Typography 28 (our all time favorite design).

This year’s designer is Sharon Werner from Werner Design Werks in St. Paul, MN.

Note the die-cut front case, and rainbow foil stamping. Each animal is created using a different letter and font, and the rainbow theme runs throughout the book.
