Meet the Art Team
- Graphic Artist
Our longest-standing artist, Jason came to Lantern Press in 2007, leaving his previous job of church bulletin design for the exciting world that is the Lantern Press art department (sometimes he even gets to draw robots, a passion of his). He attended the illustration and design program at Seattle's School of Visual Concepts. A true jack-of-all-trades, Jason is the guy we call on to pull out the bells and whistles and shake things up - be it laying out art onto twenty different shapes and products, creating a new LP magazine ad on the fly, or researching a data heavy "technical" drawing (do YOU know how many seconds it takes to reach the top of the Space Needle?), he's our man.
- Graphic Artist
The gravitational pull toward Lantern Press was so strong for Steve, he retired from a college-level teaching position and freelance illustration business to join our rowdy ranks. Steve is our team member with the most life experience, and the most art experience, and both are evident in his stunning work. He gets to draw many of his passions, be it national parks, views from mountain peaks, or scenic coastlines. We've learned that more often than not, when gathering information for a design, "Steve's been there." An avid outdoorsman, hiker and kayaker, Steve lives in Seattle with his wife and daughter.
- Graphic Artist
In the same year, Alix traded snowstorms for rainstorms and drawing award-winning tattoos for drawing lighthouses (among other things), when she moved from Pittsburgh to Seattle and was hired in 2009 as Lantern Press's third full-time artist, beating out about 200 candidates for the position. A graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, Alix brings a youthful edginess to our art team that prompts us to think outside the box. Her artwork makes one-horse towns look like vacation destinations, and brings old 1940s pinup girls to new life. She has inspired growth and innovation within our company, and strikes the perfect balance between a free spirit and tenaciously hard worker.
- Production Artist
Kaylie started at Lantern Press as an intern in 2011 before joining the ranks full time as a member of our art team. She is responsible for manipulating Lantern Press's original artwork to fit the various sizes and dimensions of the dozens of physical products we manufacture. Kaylie also designs artistic layouts that illustrate our marketing materials and assists our art team by adding custom text to designs, and maintaining our digital art library. Originally from Kansas, Kaylie lives with her husband and dog in the Seattle area, where she earned her BFA in Graphic Design from the International Academy of Design and Technology.
Meet the Production Team
- Print Production Manager
Our longest standing employee and a Seattle University graduate, Sam joined the Lantern Press team in 2007 when the company was a mere 3-person operation working out of a 200-square-foot office. Sam runs our state-of-the-art digital press and handles all digital layouts for the multitude of products that Lantern Press offers. Spending about half his time on the computer and half on the press, Sam's careful eye for detail is what ensures the highest quality printing, color, and clarity onto each product we ship.
- Office Dog
She bounds into work, tearing across the carpet, too excited even to stop for coffee on the way to her post. One thing Izzy has over anyone else in our office, is her over-the-top enthusiasm to be here. One thing everyone in our office has over Izzy, is their ability to stay awake for the duration of their shift. With a bed by mama's desk, and another by daddy's, Izzy keeps us sane on hectic days, and reminds us of the important things in life - like making sure that even in rainy Seattle, we always make time to get out for a walk.
