ABOUT







Tom Tor

Tom Tor Studios has offices in Los Angeles and Tokyo. Designer in Tokyo (was: Los Angeles) (b. 1985) of the themed display typefaces Tom Tor (2008, geometric sans), Pavadee (2008, free upright script), Khmer (2008, Khmer simulation face), Fugue (2008), Kampuchea (2008). He also made the pixel typeface Silom (2008). He writes: Formally trained in Communication Design and type designer, Tom Tor is visual rather the verbal. This is especially evident in Tor's Landmine Awareness poster design. Stark but symbolic images are used as the sole means of conveying the malicious cruelty brought on by leftover landmines. His work is strongly inspired by the Avant Garde art movements of Europe.

He was commissioned in 2009 to design S-21, a modernist face (in his own words). Sisamouth was designed in 2009 in honor by Cambodian singer Sinn Sisamouth.

Typefaces from 2010: Black Bees (a fat stencil pair).

In 2013, he designed the Latin typeface Chams and the geometric sans typeface Enso.
