The popular Type Crit is back for TypeCon2021 … and we’re taking it virtual.

Join us online Sunday, October 24th for an afternoon of lively discussion, constructive criticism, and typographic elucidation.

This year, the rules have been modified and we’re offering multiple Type Crit sessions. Each session is lead by a different group of Type Crit’ers, including our very first Type Crit for Spanish speaking type designers.

Type Crit Session 1
Lead by John Downer & Hannes Famira
12:00 pm – 1:15 pm ET

Type Crit Session 2 (Spanish)
Lead by Iliana Moreno Guzmán, Sergio Trujillo Perez & Alex García
1:30 pm – 2:45 pm ET

Type Crit Session 3
Lead by Nicole Dotin & Sol Matas
3:00 pm – 4:15 pm ET

Type Crit sessions will take place via Zoom on Sunday, October 24th. Links to each session will be shared on our social media channels and through the TypeCon2021 conference platform, Brandlive. These sessions are open to the public, however conference attendees will receive priority consideration when participants are selected. There are twelve available slots, with each critique lasting approximately 15 minutes.
