Michael Scarpitti

Michael Scarpitti has developed a strong theoretical interest and practical skill in both the graphic and verbal modes of communication. He has become one of the most prolific designers of fonts based on Latin inscriptions in the world. Mike became interested in Latin inscriptions as source material after seeing Carol Twombly’s Trajan font. He has recently branched out into fonts based upon medieval manuscripts with his Pontifica, which derives from a 12th century British manuscript. Mike has designed more than 20 typefaces based entirely on ancient historical materials. In high school, Mike began his career in photography, in which he has excelled. Mike graduated from Ohio State University with a degree in philosophy. He has published scholarly articles about translation problems and semiotics in the journal Semiotica, available online. Mike enjoys playing sports, especially tennis and soccer.
