Typography Directors Club, Collins Design ($125)
The year’s selection encompasses a wide range of categories, including books, magazines, corporate identity, logotypes, stationery, annual reports, video and Web graphics, and posters. Two new categories were introduced this year, self-promotion and experimental/unpublished.
Also new this year was the introduction of the Best in Show award. Judges were asked to decide upon one piece of work that they thought best represented the year. Niklaus Troxler was the winner for his poster Ullmann Kahne.
The 360 page Annual, designed by Mucca Design, displays each winning entry in full color and is accompanied by complete information about the designer, client, typography, and more. This year’s volume also features the results of the club’s fourteenth annual type design competition, TDC Typeface design 2011 and TDC Title Design 2011, the movie titles competition, and includes a special index listing of the principal typefaces used in the winning designs and the names of their designers.
