Radix Media

Bio

Radix Media is a worker-owned and operated union print shop and publisher based in Brooklyn, New York, offering offset, letterpress, and digital printing services, as well as foil stamping, embossing, die-cutting, and paper duplexing. Their name comes from the Latin root of the word radical which means to get to the root, and they are dedicated to keeping the printed word alive.

Radix Media is currently made up of three dedicated workers:

Lantz Arroyo, whose background is in film, video, and still photography. He’s been honing his graphic design skills for over a decade. In 2010, he fell in love with printing during a year-long apprenticeship with another small printer and publisher; he’s had ink in his veins ever since.

Nicholas Hurd, who is a California ex-pat with 15 years of printing and design experience. He holds a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and an MFA from the California College of the Arts, both in printmaking. He is an expert in letterpress, bookmaking, business card design and all forms of specialty stationery.

Sarah Lopez, who comes to Radix with a BFA in illustration from Parsons The New School for Design. It was there that she fell in love with all things print while working in the printmaking studio. She has a strong background in print design and over 5 years of experience in zine-making and self-publishing.
