ISTD website makes Grade

Grade Design Consultants has revamped the website for the International Society of Typographic Designers, as the organisation moves to restructure and offer a better service to its international members.

The first phase of the new look site,, launches this week and is focused on the provision of clear information.

‘It’s not about whizz-bang graphics,’ says Grade Design creative director Peter Dawson. ‘It’s about content, facts and information, and [being] a resource centre for members, students and journalists.’

The group will start work on phase-two of the development this month, focusing on the site’s membership area. Plans include an interactive discussion forum, an international membership database and a legal advice service.
