Kyle Durrie. Designer. Print maker. Typographer. Portland.
Kyle Durrie is bringing the print process to the masses with her Type Truck. She installed a tiny printing press studio in the back of a van and is driving across the US with it, offering classes everywhere she stops. "This project came about because two of my favorites things in life, road trips and printing, seemed to be getting in the way of one another". Durrie fit two antique printing machines (a sign press and a platen press) into the back of the old bread truck, but also had to incorporate some living space. Kyle has used up her Kickstarter funds so is now relying on donations, workshop fees, and print sales to support this full-time adventure in design education. Awesomeness. Follow her trip and check out all the great prints being made along the way HERE.
