Jenny Wilkson

June 9, 8:30am - 10:00am PDT. Hosted at Facebook (SEA)


About the speaker

Jenny Wilkson founded the letterpress program at the School of Visual Concepts (SVC) in 2001. Originally a book designer, she holds a Master of Arts in Design from UC Berkeley, and is fortunate to be one of the few of her generation to have undergone a traditional letterpress apprenticeship. In 2012, she co-created the wiki website Letterpress Commons. These days she oversees the operations, curriculum and community outreach of SVC’s letterpress shop at the School’s facility in South Lake Union—the epicenter of Seattle’s tech boom. Through SVC, she facilitates creative collaborations with local nonprofits and directs the annual Letterpress Wayzgoose and the mighty Steamroller Smackdown—a friendly competition where design teams print giant posters with a steamroller instead of a printing press.
