About the Instructor | Lars Kim
Lars Kim is a designer and letterpress printer living in San Francisco. After several years in architecture and new media, she unexpectedly stumbled upon a Heidelberg Windmill and rediscovered the tactile beauty of letterpress. Since then, she has deepened her passion for typography as well as the technical aspects of print and bookbinding, working on a wide range of commercial and private projects. She happily continues to sling pixels and ink at Logos Graphics and her freelance practice, Solsken Design.
Past Student Reviews:
“Lars is very engaging and obviously very passionate and skilled in her craft. She is very patient and had no problem stopping and helping anyone with questions/problem during exercises. Her sample prints that she brought in were very inspiring.”
“Lars was so knowledgable and easy to understand. She very calmly and at a good steady pace explained different ways to digitize type and images for polymer. She was very clear in her steps and never went too fast."
