Kim is a designer and illustrator and Dan is a print maker and a designer, and they both share a studio at the SFSA. She has been at the Studio for over 3 years now and together, they have been sharing the studio for over 2 years.
Kim’s ‘work spans from producing commissioned illustrations and prints, through to visual interface, information and identity design for both print and digital media. In addition to this she also pursues personally motivated work through calligraphy, lettering, creative bookbinding, drawing and printmaking. (…)Parallel to her design work, Kim is also a keen letterpress and relief printmaker, sharing her studio with a Vicobold―a vintage parallel impression printing press―and a Farley galley proof press.’
Kim really likes working through the manipulation of the materials and she actually loves making mistakes because it is from them her ideas come from.
She likes to work in a ‘not too messy’ place, however, Kim can’t work without having stuff around her, so like she says ‘it is a process of tidy/messy’.
Dan is really into print making and his wrapping paper was clearly amazing and elegant. He loves the idea of mixing colors and each year he creates a new print, with a different color, as an anniversary gift of his work for himself.
