Marcus Burlile was born in Columbus, Ohio in 1970 to a handsome, yet modest couple. From the introduction of letterforms as a young boy, the interest of art and lettering continues to grow as the greatest interest in his life. A majority of time is spent pursuing this desire. He studied art, design, and typography in La Jolla, California obtaining a bachelor's degree in design in 1992.
His pursuit of self-exploration with type have currently yielded over one hundred digital fonts retailed worldwide by such type foundries as Garagefonts, [T-26], Fontworks UK, Fonthaus, Precision Type, AGFA, Atomic Type, Monotype, TypeUSA, Plazm Fonts, and 13types. Type experiments can also be seen expressed within his fine art paintings. As a design consultant and freelance art director for a vast portfolio of clients, his work has appeared within many national as well as international typography award books.
