TypeThursdaySEA is a monthly gathering of Seattle-area type geeks, held at WeWork in South Lake Union. We like to think of ourselves as a type superfamily: we attract local letterform lovers hailing from all disciplines and levels of expertise. Social hours bookend the centerpiece of our event, a group critique of work-in-progress that we refer to as Type Crit. It's an inclusive event, and a forum for everyone in the local lettering & typographic community to get together informally every month. TypeThursday is a great way to come out of your own corner for an evening of meeting up with your peers. We've been going long enough now to have “regulars,” but newcomers are very welcome and invited to join us.
Each event kicks off with free wine & beer (donations very much accepted, but not required), and lots of friendly talk. We have a raffle (who knows what items of typographic interest will turn up this month?) and swag from the month's Foundry Spotlight. There's a Lettering Table where anyone can draw or scribble to their heart's content. Did we mention friendly people with some common interests? Make it your monthly Seattle typographic habit.
And you never know who might show up. In August we had both Roger Black and Ksenya Samarskaya visit us, and Roger showed us an "unsolicited redesign" he had done. In October those of us who were at the ATypI conference in Antwerp showed stuff we had brought back from there, and we celebrated TTSEA’s one-year anniversary with cake.
