Event description

Description

Type Thursday London is excited to host the next event at Ravensbourne Uni in Greenwich on October 10th!

We have another amazing set of presenters so, please stay tuned!

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.

Email us if you want to share your design with us. london@typethursday.org
