TypeThursdayNYC Feb 15

February 15 @ 11:30 pm - February 16 @ 2:30 am

TypeThursday is a meeting place for people who love letterforms. TypeThursday is currently in New York City and across the globe.

The day after Valentines, bring your date to TWA (The Working Assembly).

And that’s perfect because they are hosting us, and also the Type Director’s Club former library.

Their new office is in the Flatiron district, at 6 West 18th Street, 12th Floor.

It’s fontastic & boldacious & x-heighting!

It’s TypeThursdayNYC!

TypeThursdayNYC is a monthly gathering of type 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 centerpiece 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. Plenty of wine.

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 TypeThursdayNYC dialogue lead—we pride ourselves on fostering a friendly forum for constructive, thoughtful advice that’ll raise the baseline on your letterform game.
