How do I submit work for review at the event?

Bring your work-in-progress typographic or lettering projects. Anything where type designers and educators can help you. Bring concept work, roughs, and proofs to share and discuss with attendees. Our critique lead will help you get feedback.

Some examples:
• UI: an App or Website that is typographic in nature.
• Lettering: many 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 Discussion; 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 complete this form to submit work to TypeThursday CHI:

Am I required to show work?

Not at all! You’re welcome to come and learn. We do encourage participating in the critiques and asking questions that would benefit the presenters and the community.

Who will be there?

You'll mingle with designers, business people and educators who want to learn more about you.
Founder of TypeThursday, Thomas Jockin, will be dropping by this first event!
