Frequently Asked Questions
What the font is Type Crit?
Briefly: It’s a critique. Of letterforms. No grades. Plenty of beer.
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 TypeThursday dialogue lead—we pride ourselves on fostering a friendly forum for constructive, thoughtful advice that’ll raise the baseline on your letterform game.
