Gerald Gallo established his graphic design services in 1974, and went on to produce
logos, trademarks, custom fonts and illustration work for numerous clients. His work

___ In future issues of DT&G we'll show you some of the other great fonts in the GALLO collection including a good "Grunge" style font and some rather unique fonts built of blocks that take on a grayscale appearance.
___ In the mean time, you can visit Gallo in his virtual studios and see not only some of his graphic design work, but his full collection of fonts as well.
