Since 2016, I have been managing the student publication process at 826LA, including designing and art direction for the publication designs, setting publication schedules, production, and ensuring high visual quality of all 826LA publications. Check out recent publications here. I work with a cohort of designers and makers to produce over 25 publications per year at 826LA (and ~100 in my time there so far).
Our publications are sold in the Time Travel Marts in Echo Park and Mar Vista, have appeared at the LA Times Festival of Books, and are in the hands of all the student writers who authored them. We’ve partnered with LAUSD schools, The Broad, The Hammer Museum, The Lucas Museum, and more to produce partnership publications as well. All publications range from in-house produced chapbooks, periodicals, and annual reports, to nationally funded publications.
