TypeThursday BUC ☛ MayMeetup Typography
TypeThursday BUC #01
TypeThursdayBUC is a monthly event dedicated to everyone with a passion for typography. We like to think of ourselves as a type super-family: 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 friendly critique of letterforms. No grades. Plenty of wine/beer.
Type Crit is a group critique of up to three 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 TypeThursdayBUC dialogue lead—we pride ourselves on fostering a friendly forum for constructive, thoughtful advice that’ll raise the baseline on your letterform game.

You’ll get free, friendly, fast feedback from fellow font fanatics. Type Crit presenters get free admission to the event. We shower presenters with love on our social media.

We accept any work involving the use or design of letterforms. Examples: logotype designs, hand lettering, calligraphy, typeface design, print layouts that involve typesetting, UI designs that need hierarchical sharpening… or make up a new genre of type-related work and blow our minds!
