Scorpio was designed by Michael Harvey, Andy Benedek and published by Fine Fonts. Scorpio contains 1 style.  

Scorpio is a font based on lettering Michael Harvey drew for the card "The Sign of The Nudge" which was designed in collaboration with the concrete poet, Ian Hamilton Finlay. The purpose of the card was to prompt those owing monies to IHF, into paying promptly. Michael also used it on some of the many book jackets he designed. As such, it is a condensed design necessary to enable a lot of text to be fitted with a restricted space. Scorpio has both style and verve. It was designed to attract the attention of potential purchasers browsing the shelfs in bookshops. In fulfilling this rĂ´le, it succeeded admirably. In all these respects, it is unquestionably a unique Michael Harvey design. When Michael died in 2013, this font existed as a drawing of the basic upper and lower case letterforms plus numerals. Andy Benedek's contribution to Scorpio was to digitise the existing letterforms and then create the remaining characters necessary for a modern font.
