ISTD welcomes applications for membership from those actively involved in the field of visual communication, practitioners or educators, who can provide evidence to the Board of their competence as typographic, graphic and visual communication designers, to an acceptable standard, and who agree to uphold the professional aims and ideals of ISTD. There are four categories of membership.
Honorary Fellowship: Hon FISTD
Honorary Fellowship is awarded in recognition of outstanding typographic design work, or significant contribution to the Society or the typographic industry.
Fellowship is awarded in recognition of professional standing or for services to the Society. Fellowships may also be awarded to eminent contributors to the field who are not already members of the Society. Nominations may be made by members or fellows, supported by evidence of the nominee's work and distinction, and ratified by the Board.
Membership is open to all practising typographers, graphic designers and educators who show, by submission of their typographic design work, or through evidence of competence in their field of activity, that their professional ability has reached the high standard required by the Society. Membership is also offered to students who successfully complete the ISTD Annual Student Assessment Scheme.
