I am a graphic designer currently residing in Temecula, CA. I began my career in 1956 in Glendale Ca. and now live and maintain a design office in Temecula. I have a model 17 Ellipsograph that has served me well over the years...until being replaced by the digital world. This instrument was remarkable in its versatility and accurate reproduction of elliptical forms and I have a number of logo designs from that period incorporating the Ellipsograph.
