Grendl Löfkvist

Grendl Löfkvist, Education Director at Letterform Archive, teaches type history and theory in the year-long postgraduate Type West program in type design. Grendl also teaches the history of graphic design, book arts, calligraphy, and letterpress printing at City College of San Francisco, as well as several classes at the San Francisco Center for the Book. Grendl has ink in her veins: she was an offset press operator for 20 years; she is currently a letterpress printer, and she serves on the board of directors of the American Printing History Association. Her interests include the study of printing as a subversive “Black Art” and she’s always on the lookout for bizarre or macabre print, type, and lettering lore (she is a bit of a goth).
