Meet the instructor
Hi I’m Joe, I’ve been designing for 25 years. In my career as a graphic designer I use a MAC, with all its fancy electronic programs, but I have always been fascinated with the old school process of hand typesetting and the black art of letterpress.

Letterpress gives me the opportunity to marry two of my passions: Designing and working with my hands. Setting the letters by hand, tweaking the press, mixing inks, pulling the lever and humbly smiling at the finished product is extremely rewarding.
