Amy Redmond

Amy Redmond began letterpress printing in 1998 when her job as a book designer became a quest to learn the finer points of typography. Her multi-year apprenticeship with Chris Stern and Jules Faye (Stern & Faye, Printers) cultivated a high bar of craftsmanship and a shared love for traditional and experimental use of letterforms.

Following Chris’ death in 2006, Amy spent several years assisting Jules with inventory. Upon becoming the custodian of some of their equipment (including 2 presses and several type cabinets) her print studio grew to its current form, Amada Press. With one foot planted in analog and the other in digital, she’s struck a satisfying creative balance of ink and pixels. Amy is a self-employed Art Director and teaches letterpress at Seattle’s School of Visual Concepts.
