Agenda: June 07 - 13

Tokyo TDC Award 2010 nominee: 8 new fonts on the block
Tokyo TDC Award 2010 nominee: "8 new fonts on the block".
Based on different types of paving stones found in the city of Seoul, Korean graphic designer Jiwon Park has generated 8 new typefaces. (It reminds me a bit to my own "Japanese Memoscapes" Project.)
For more fun with typography, visit the Tokyo TDC Exhibition at the ddd gallery in Osaka until July 3. The exhibition shows this year’s winners and selected nominated works of the international competition held by the Tokyo Type Directors Club. Among the winners is e. g. the video of "Hibi no Neiro".
