Margo Chase Design (was: Gravy Designs) [Margo Chase]

Margo Chase (b. 1958, d. 2017, Apple Valley, CA) was an American graphic designer. Originally a biology major with intentions of becoming a veterinarian, Chase studied design at California Polytechnic Colege, San Luis Obispo. She created logos for the TV shows Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. Her company, Margo Chase Design (founded in 1986) was involved in the branding of numerous entities, such as Target stores, as well as celebrities such as Cher, Madonna and Selena. Chase Design Group has offices in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and the UK. Chase lived in Los Angeles, California. In addition to working as a graphic designer, Chase taught at the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, and Long Beach State University. She died in a plane crash while practicing an acrobatic sequence on July 22, 2017.

Margo Chase created or enabled some exquisite typefaces such as Celtic Envision, Box Gothic, Bradley, Edit, Evolution, Kruella (1997), Portcullis (by Brian Hunt), Pterra-dactyl, Shiraz (1998), Tribe (by Ferris Emery) and Vitriol. Many of these fonts have a gothic flavour.

Richard Lipton's Ecru, Talon and Shogun typefaces at Font Bureau are based on Margo Chase's lettering.
