Description

Catch the latest word on the letterform street!

Type Thursday London is excited to host June event at one of the world leading paper manufacturers, Fedrigoni UK in Clerkenwell on June 6th!

TypeThursday 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..

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.

Sign up to present work for feedback at Type Crit DEADLINE is June 3 (Monday).

6 – 6.30pm: Social hour, one drink is included in your ticket.
7pm: Type Crit.. Group critiques of letterform design/usage.

8pm: More mixing ’n’ mingling...during Type Crit., you'll realise there are lots of smart people in the room you still need to meet.
8:30pm: Full stop.
