Spudnik welcomes Alex Gilbert as our 2014 Printing Apprentice

Spudnik Press is thrilled to announce our 2014 Printing Apprentice, Alex Gilbert. Alex recently graduated from Harrington Design, with a strong appreciation of typography and an itch to spend time in a print studio. Over the next ten months, he will be working alongside staff to produce limited edition prints through our Publishing Program.  Alex will also be using the shop to produce his own body of artwork, with advising and general support from Spudnik’s Studio Manager, Veronica Siehl.

What does Alex have to say?

I am honored and excited to be joining the Spudnik family for the next ten months. During my time here, I will be assisting with a variety of in-house and client printing; I will also be designing and printing a personal project that pays homage to Chicago’s important typographic history. If you want to know more about me or what I’m making, stop by the studio on Thursdays and say hi!

Our Publishing Program began in 2009, with the paid Printing Apprenticeship formed in 2013. We look forward to a full year working with clients, old and new, on letterpress, screenprinting, and relief printing projects. E-mail Alex if you have a project in mind!
