Margo Chase ? designer of logos for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dracula, Madonna and more...

Since founding Chase Design Group in 1986, Margo has consistently produced and led award-winning work in many areas of design. Recognized worldwide for her skill with custom typography and identity development, Margo believes that effective design creates an emotional connection that transcends language and culture. In the growing global market, this human connection is crucial to the success of any brand. Her vision provides the fuel for Chase Design Group?s growth and achievement.

Over the past 20 years, Margo?s landmark identity design has gained international recognition. Building on early successes in the music business designing packaging for artists Madonna, Cher, Prince, and others, her studio?s dynamic, award-winning style can now be seen in work for a long roster of prestigious clients including AIG Sun America, Belkin, Cartoon Network, Chinese Laundry, Discovery Communications, Mattel, Nike, Procter&Gamble, Reebok, Target, The WB Television Network, USA Networks, Virgin Records, and Warner Bros. Records.

In a recent Graphic Design USA reader?s poll, Margo was one of only two designers to make the top ten in both ?Most Influential Graphic Designers of the Era? and ?Most Influential Graphic Designers Today.? Among numerous other awards, Chase was selected as one of I.D. Magazine?s ?I.D. Forty.? Her work has been featured in countless design periodicals and books, including Communication Arts, Graphis, I.D., HOW, Radical Graphics/Graphic Radicals, and All Access The Making of 30 Extraordianry Graphic Designers. She was recently featured in the celebrated show ?Women Designers in the USA, 1900-2000: Diversity and Difference? on exhibition in New York City. She has taught the highest level typography classes at Art Center College of Design and California Institute of the Arts. Outside of the office, she loves to ski, travel and fly airplanes.
