After learning the art of letterpress printing at Los Angeles' famed Women's Graphic Center at the beginning of 1982, his initial projects centered around creating album covers, postcards, and promotional stamps for his band Savage Republic. It didn't take long before he was producing work for other Los Angeles underground music groups, along with a growing number of clients in the Los Angeles design community. In addition to packaging and releasing music on his own record label, Independent Project Records, Independent Project Press has produced elegant and creative pieces of letterpress-printed ephemera for the likes of REM, Stereolab, and Camper Van Beethoven. Licher was nominated twice for a Grammy Award for his album packaging, and has been credited with starting the trend in letterpress-printed CD and record packaging using industrial-style chipboard. His work has been featured in two major design exhibitions at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York City. Published by P22 Type Foundry Publication, "Savage Impressions" is the first extensive monograph on Bruce Licher's Independent Project Records & Press. Beautifully designed and lavishly produced, the book is a profound reminder of the value of the hand-made and how it can interface with the mass produced."
