As a continuation of the Cdot’s Design Pioneers Exhibit, Communication Designers of Toronto (Cdot) honours OCAD alumnus Frank Newfeld, his historic design work and new book Drawing on Type at Swipe Books on Advertising and Design. Drawing on Type is the fascinating life-story of one of Canada’s most accomplished book publishing figures: Frank Newfeld, designer/illustrator/educator (retired) and author.

A true pioneer of Toronto’s early design scene, Newfeld has designed over 650 books and won over 167 international awards. From a humble studio on Spadina Avenue in 1954, he rose to become Vice-President of Publishing at McClelland & Stewart, head of the illustration program at Sheridan College and Co-founder/President of the Society of Typographic Designers of Canada (now the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada - GDC).
