About this Event

Type Thursday London is a monthly gathering of design geeks. 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 centrepiece of our event, a group critique we refer to as Type Crit.

Sign up to our newsletter for type news and special offers.

What the font is Type Crit?

Briefly:

It’s a critique. Of letterforms. No grades. With drinks and time to make new friends.

Verbosely:

Type Crit. is a group critique of up to four in-progress projects involving letterform design and/or usage. You can get, give, or simply listen to feedback—your pick! Discussion is moderated by a TypeThursday dialogue lead—we pride ourselves in fostering a friendly forum for constructive, thoughtful advice that’ll raise the baseline on your letterform game.

Submit your work if you want to share your design with us.
