ABOUT







P. Scott Makela

Scott Makela (of the Cranbrook Academy of Arts) designed Dead History for Emigre. Born in St. Paul, MN, in 1960. In 1999, he died at age 39 in Detroit from a rare virus. Scott made Dead History (1990, Emigre) by using the "blend fonts" option in Fontographer to mix Bell Centennial, VAG Rounded and a shareware font. The Fight Club movie uses a font by him that looks like Folio Bold Italic. Interestingly, it took a friend of mine only one hour to replicate that movie font.
