Type ThursdayNYC @ Wix Playground

January 10, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

It’s fontastic & boldacious & x-heighting!
It’s TypeThursdayNYC!

TypeThursdayNYC is a monthly gathering of type geeks, this month held at Wix Playground. 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.
