Font Designer – Tom Grace

Tom Grace is a typeface designer and font developer. He creates custom character styles, from which he builds high-quality fonts. His ability to enhance existing designs has led him to work with other type designers and studios, among them Linotype, Jeremy Tankard Typography, Porchez Typofonderie, Gerard Unger, and Process Type Foundry. Beyond his client commissions and collaborative endeavors, he expresses his creative aspiration through independent work.

After studies in the health sciences, he developed his technical skills and experience in IT support and Web development. His appreciation for type, logotypes, lettering and typography grew through his work and through training in visual design. His formal education in designing type comes from the Rhode Island School of Design and the University of Reading, where he received his MA in typeface design.

His background in science informs his thorough and precise approach, and his persistent curiosity about nature continues to be a main source of inspiration. He explores with particular interest the creative process, the Cyrillic script, and the beauty of working with the pencil.
