TypeThursday: Four new city chapters & San Francisco turns 1!
Time certainly flies! Our friends at TypeThursday San Francisco celebrate their first birthday on September 21 and we are looking forward to raising a glass to them — quite literally as they’ll have champagne on Thursday night.
Additionally, there will be cake (of course) and a custom letterpress poster to commemorate the occasion. Reserve your spot on the Eventbrite page if you’d like to join the celebration!
“After our first full year, I am delighted by the continued enthusiasm, support, and participation TypeThursdaySF receives from the community here,” says Delve Withrington, SF Chapter Lead. “Attendees have related to me that now they cannot imagine what it would be like without TTSF, and I wholeheartedly agree with that sentiment — the event has become a fixture for those of us in the Bay Area. One we all eagerly look forward to each month.”
In addition to this anniversary, TypeThursday is launching four new chapters in October, including its first international one. Type enthusiasts in Chicago, Philadelphia, Seattle, and London will now have a monthly gathering spot for type crits and socializing.
“TypeThursday’s international expansion to London is exciting proof of the value we contribute to the communities we serve in six US cities, and now, London,” explains founder Thomas Jockin. “TypeThursday creates space to help the individual practitioner improve their abilities, educates the audience in the thinking behind design, and creates a sense of community among participants with their contributions. Under the fanatic leadership of Julie Strawson and the rest of the TTLondon team, I believe the values of TypeThursday will touch the hearts of Europe.”
Mark your calendars for these remaining 2017 dates (more to be added), and hopefully the Typekit team will be able to join you at one of the many chapters around the globe — we’re proud to be a National Sponsor for the organization!
