ABOUT







Thomas Foley

Or Tom Foley. Graphic and type designer in London. Foley obtained an MA in Communication Design Central from Saint Martins in 2009. Visiting lecturer on The MA Communication Design course at Central Saint Martins and the BA Visual Communications Course at Bristol University of Art&Design. In 2018, he became Creative Type Director at Monotype.

His typefaces:

  • The transitional text typeface Nib (2010). Developed under the guidance of Freda Sack.
  • The sans family Hewitt (2010).
  • Intel Clear Cyrillic, for which Dalton Maag, Tom Foley, Mary Faber, Stuart Brown and Hanna Donker won a Granshan 2014 award.
  • Bressay (2015). A Scotch roman designed by Stuart Brown and the Dalton Maag team (including Tom Foley, Sebastian Losch, and Spike Spondike). Bressay won an award at TDC 2016.
  • Tom Foley and Sebastian Losch published the rounded slab serif typeface family Gelo at Dalton Maag in November 2017.
  • Cotford and Cotford Variable (2021, Monotype). A 16-style text and display serif family, accompanied by a variable font. Monotype writes: Cotford is a languid serif that ranges from delicate thins, bending and reaching like flower stems, to bold heavy weights that command the page and screen with confidence and vintage charm.

Speaker at ATypI 2010 in Dublin, where he discussed the history of Irish type and the roots of his book family, Nib.
