Five Thirty (a.k.a. FVTY, 5 Thirty, Five 30, 5 3 0) organizes workshops on a weekly basis that focus on generating new ideas in form and concept within type design.

The collective can be run by anyone, allowing easy experimentation with new ideas and processes. 530 is not tied down to one way of working; a workshop one week might ignore certain conventions, while the next workshop follows totally different rules.

As part of the collective since it started in 2017, I have participated in many beautiful type workshops. Being able to have a platform for free experimentation and play has been a really valuably part of my studies.
