The World’s Best Typography exhibition is coming to Objectspace.

This Type Directors Club project will exhibit at the gallery for three days, spearheaded by creative agency Osborne Shiwan and sponsored by Klim Type Foundry.

Direct from its New York showing, this exhibition will showcase an exciting and culturally diverse range of award-winning work chosen by some of the design industry’s most recognised mentors, creative innovators and thought-leaders.

Join us for the opening of World’s Best Typography from 6pm on Friday 26 August. As well as your first opportunity to see an array of world-class design work, our friends at Scapegrace will be slinging gins and we’ll have warm mulled wine on the go.
