COMMUNITY / ONLINE EVENT
Thursday, August 20, 2020 | 7PM – 9PM
TypeThursdayLA is a monthly meetup for people who love letterforms or are interested in learning more about Typography.
Keep those type skills sharp all summer!
Do you have any big typography-based projects? A typeface you’re workshopping? Bring them to TypeThursdayLA and we’ll give you our feedback and encouragement, regardless of your skill level. Talk about type in a fun laid back environment on August 20th via Zoom. We’ll be playing music and having an informal hang out starting at 7PM, followed by a type crit until 9PM. Come check it out!
SHARE YOUR WORK
To present projects, submit your files before the TypeThursday event through this form. 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.
PARTNERS & SPONSORS
TypeThursdayLA is made possible by our generous sponsors:

TypeThursday Los Angeles is proudly sponsored by the Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography at ArtCenter College of Design. Join us to collaborate and support each other’s design work and improve the integrity of typography.
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
