People in Type Thursday event

What goes down at
Type Thursday?

                                    In short: it’s three hours of fontastic fun. Our monthly events kick off with social time and drinks, followed by an hour of Type Crit, our moderated group critique of up to three, in-progress projects involving letterform design and/or usage. You can get, give, or simply listen to feedback. After Type Crit, attendees can hang out for another hour of social time before the event wraps. Get tickets for the next TypeThursday event in your area.

Why should I attend
Type Thursday?

We welcome all type(face)s. Our events attract letterform lovers in cities worldwide, hailing from all disciplines and levels of expertise. We’ve seen everyone from professors to full-time typeface designers, to even UI designers and illustrators! You’ll spot friendly faces, and even the occasional famous face. No matter your background, if you like type, you’ll be right at home. Raise the baseline on your letterform work

At TypeThursday, you’ll be treated to something you can’t always get from a BFF, grandma, or the adjacent cubicle: type-centric discussion from informed and diverse perspectives. Some attend TypeThursday to get advice on their work. Some relish jumping into the conversation to share tips and tricks. Others attend just to listen. And all attendees, from presenters to observers, benefit from the open exchange of knowledge.
