The Young Ones Education Festival is an invaluable opportunity for current students and graduating seniors to interact with industry professionals, build their portfolios and have them reviewed, collect coveted One Show Pencils and ADC Cubes, and maybe even walk away with a job, as several lucky students do each year.

THE YOUNG ONES STUDENT AWARDS CEREMONY
Tuesday, May 8 / 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM
INDUSTRIA, 775 WASHINGTON ST NYC

Emerging young talent from all over the world will receive their One Show Pencils, ADC Cubes and Portfolio Awards on stage and celebrate with a reception following the ceremony.

Hosted by Momo Pixel - Art Director, Pixel Designer, and Singer. Starting her career as a copywriter, Momo wrote commercials for Nintendo and later went on to create Momoland, an annual interactive pixel-art experience. As Momoland grew, Momo incorporated more technology into her work and in 2017 with the help of Wieden+Kennedy, she released Hair Nah, a video game to keep people from touching black women’s hair. It has since become a global sensation featured in CNN, Rolling Stone, Essence, Teen Vogue, Vice UK and many many more.

TDC TYPE WALK
Tuesday, May 8
Meeting place will be emailed advance of the tour.
 

This year's Creative Week Urban Lettering Walk, cosponsored by the Type Directors Club, The One Club, and Legacy of Letters, will take cover the adjoining West Side neighborhoods of the Garment District and Chelsea between 42nd Street and 14th Street. The Garment District is an industrial neighborhood, dominated by early 20th century setback skyscrapers with a variety of lettering styles for the building names. Mixed in with these gritty industrial buildings are a few churches and retail outlets to provide additional lettering variety. Chelsea is more residential with named apartment buildings, schools, churches, and banks to provide lettering of interest. Stylistically, we will see textura, versals, sans serif, slab serif, classical Roman capitals, some Art Deco, and a little bit of neon. In short, a little bit of everything.
