TDC Awards

The TDC competition, established in 1953, is the longest running, most prestigious, global typography and type design competition. Now in its 70th year, these awards are all about how letterforms are used and drawn, recognizing typographic excellence and celebrating new typeface designs in all global languages.

2023 TDC Awards - Type Design


Agency Vectro / Portland + Philipp Neumeyer / Berlin

Client N/A


Multiple Axis Type Family (ie weight + width)

Annual ID



A tightly compressed sans with ever so closed apertures, a fairly large x-height, short ascenders and even shorter descenders. The overall design is mostly subtle with infrequent outbursts of lavish peculiarities; like a rather high waist, that is featured throughout some letters as a somewhat flavourful ingredient. The overall appearance lives off its reduced character. This family comprises 12 styles in six weights — Hairline to Bold — in Upright and Slanted and comes with extended language support; from Latin over Cyrillic and Greek to all kinds of arrows and some carefully selected symbols. It is a true workhorse for tight headlines and everything that screams for big typesetting.
