Fluorescent colors, bold wood type, and lettering that shook and shimmied defined Globe’s iconic style, attracting clients from James Brown and Marvin Gaye to Ike and Tina Turner. Globe ceased production in 2010, and the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) stepped forward to purchase a substantial portion of Globe, including wood type, letterpress cuts and posters. The acquisition by MICA keeps Globe’s legacy alive as a working press, a teaching tool, and source for research.

Her love of Globe kept her in Baltimore, lurking around MICA’s campus, helping on projects and spreading the word of Globe until MICA finally hired her. Allison manages all things related to Globe at MICA from the production of Globe’s new projects for clients like Hello Kitty, Smithsonian Institutions and Stax Records, to wrangling Globe interns, overseeing archiving, working on community-oriented projects and more.
