IBM Plex Thai Loopless

For: IBM & Bold Monday
Date: 2018

This Thai extension for IBM Plex, which I designed together with Ben Mitchell in 2018. I was and still am sublimely exited and honoured to have been part of this epic, beautiful, challenging and educational project with so many talented designers from all over the globe.


You see the Loopless style here, which is mainly designed to be used in larger sizes and goes greatly along the Latin IBM Plex Sans.

One challenge during the design process was to mirror the Plex texture in the Thai. I might say we succeeded. The outcome is a very original Thai typeface that matches perfectly with any of the other scripts which IBM Plex supports and will support.

In case you wonder: »Mark! How can I get it?« – Well, wait no longer and it for free at Adobe Typekit or GitHub.
