FAQs

Am I required to show work?
No, but 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.

What can I present at the event?
Bring your work-in-progress projects that are typographic in nature or utilize type in some fashion. Anything where graphic designers can help you. Some examples:

  • UI/UX: An App or Site that utilizes typographic elements

  • Lettering: Sketches and directions for a lettering assignment

  • Typeface: Proofs showcasing large renders of the letters, spacing proofs, text settings of the type

  • Layout: Multi-page compositions that handle large areas of type

To present projects, submit your files a day before TypeThursday. Your work, if accepted, will be projected onto the wall and the group will help improve your typography! Please do not show any work that is covered under contracts or NDAs, as your presentation will be photographed and shown to the group.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Email TypeThursdayLA organizer Rachel Elnar at rachel@typethursday,org.
