ABOUT







Jerry Campbell

Detroit-based designer and calligrapher. Designer of ITC Isbell (1980-1981) together with Dick Isbell. Jerry has worked for over 50 years in Detroit, where he designed the lettering for Cadillac. An anecdote from Susan Skarsgard: At one point, Jerry saw an ad from Signature Software for having a font made out of one's handwriting for about 99 dollars. Jerry sent in his "sample", and he received his font in the mail. Some time later, he noticed his own beautiful handwriting in a national ad campaign for Buick, and realized that Signature Software must have done something underhanded. Soooo, lucky Jerry cashed in from Buick. That font is now called Camelot.
