ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Tana Kosiyabong is an award-winning Creative Director/Art Director/Designer with 20 years of experience in creative and design. His body of work spans from traditional and digital creative advertising to environmental design and typeface design. After a long stint assisting clients in seven cities across North America and Asia with their creative needs, he decided to start building a brand of his own. While exploring tons of ideas over several buckets of fried chicken wings smothered in sweet Thai chili sauce and fresh-brewed coffee, he stumbled upon a little type sketch. One thing led to the other; the drawing had turned into a big typeface family, Alio™. And most importantly, even after several months of working long hours, seven days a week and countless kerning pairs, he found himself falling in love with type design.
