Acorde presents the most beautiful books of A/D/CH/NL
Like every year the Typographic Society Austria (tga – Typographische Gesellschaft Austria) shows the most beautiful books of Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and the Netherlands in cooperation with the Vienna Public Libraries and the Association of Austrian Book Trade.
The most beautiful books of 2010 can be seen in the Central Library in Vienna from December 7, 2011 to February 4, 2012. The exhibition design is entirely set in Acorde. Since Acorde is used for small text (labels, signs, flyers) as well as for large headlines, the exhibition design is a good example of Acorde’s suitability for all different sizes.Some impressions from the exhibition of the most beautiful books in Vienna.

Acorde wins the Joseph Binder Award in Bronze
The Joseph Binder Award is a biennial international design competition organised by Design Austria, Austria’s only professional association and service organisation representing the interests of designers from all creative disciplines. The jury of this year’s competition was chaired by Dutch design icon Gert Dumbar, and consisted of renowned international experts such as Lo Breier and Olaf Hajek.
Although Design Austria has been awarding the Joseph Binder Award since 1996, this year’s competition was the first one to have the category type design as a design discipline on its own. Introducing awards for this discipline reflects the growing significance and recognition of type design in Austria. It is a great honour that Acorde was one of the first typefaces to receive the highly respected Joseph Binder Award in this new category.Double page spread of the Joseph Binder Award catalogue showing Acorde.
