FAQs

How do I submit work for review at the event?

Drop us a line by 29th January to bring your work-in-progress typographic or lettering design projects for feedback. Any kind of work involving letterforms is accepted - graphic design applications of all kinds are great! Bring concept work, roughs, and proofs to share and discuss with attendees. We can project from a pdf or hand around printed proofs of your work. Our critique leads, Anastasios Maragiannis and Andrew Boag will help you get feedback.

AND if you prefer to get some private advice just ask to speak with them during the informal session from 6-7pm.

Some examples of work we can review:
• UI: an App or Website that is typographic in nature.
• Lettering: sketches and directions for a lettering assignment.
• Typeface: type proofs showcasing large renders of the letters, spacing proofs, text settings of the type.

Submit a pdf of your work securely online for the Type Crit. and it will be ready for you to show at the event. Your work will be projected onto the screen so the group can share their tips to help improve your work!

Please email london@typethursday.org to submit work to TypeThursday London.
