All Are Welcome
We welcome all type design projects; our Los Angeles design community has presented and received feedback on everything from packaging design, to user interface (UI) design to typeface design.
Our TypeThursday community nurtures the Los Angeles design community to grow and reach beyond their own limitations through audience participation in the TypeCrit format.
Share Your Work
To present a project, submit your files to TypeThursdayLA through our Submission Form. If accepted, you’ll get the chance to present your work and creative process and get live feedback from our community to help improve your typography skills.

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.
I want to present work! 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, etc.
- Layout: Multi-page compositions that handle large areas of type
