Summer 2017: Signal Return Internship

Signal Return Letterpress Studio’s internship focused on developing good analog printing techniques, including linoleum carvings and typesetting. Within the summer, I personally designed, set, and printed a Christmas card, a postcard, and a small broadside print to be sold in Signal Return's shop. I made a rule for myself that I would never touch a computer for the duration of my internship. By doing so, I was able to improve my hand sketching skills and come to understand the work I typically rely on my computer for producing.
