By night he invests time in passion projects like Boat Magazine, FormFiftyFive and Gallery Church, specialising in brand identity and editorial design.

The relaunch of  Monotype’s ‘The Recorder’ Magazine is really worth buying – Issue 1 features a broad range of interesting type/typography subjects — from street signs to Sci-Fi — the bi-annual publication “will focus on the wider implications of typography and how it contributes to a broader cultural context.

Over the last few months Luke has shot into the spotlight for his re-imagining of The Recorder a journal first launched by typeface company Monotype in 1902. Its new incarnation is a bright, magazine-y format designed with the aim of broadening the titles appeal and introducing a brave & bold new direction, which Tonge and his team can build on in subsequent issues.

Luke Tonge joins our speaker line-up for Glug Birmingham this Thursday 4th June at Spotlight & Nextdoor, and will be sharing his journey into the creative industry, alongside art director Jonny Costello, London based design studio Shotopop and Aardman Animations senior designer Gavin Strange. Exciting!
