Century was a celebration of typographic design and its integral role in graphic design and advertising over the past 100 years.

The walls and floors of the gallery were covered in hundreds of typographic periods, the most humble of all glyphs. The pattern illustrated the endless diversity and minutiae in even the simplest forms.

The exhibition's identity was a fractured "C" that juxtaposed various eras of type design into one cohesive whole. When in motion the "C" cycled through hundreds of different fonts culled from Monotype's library.
