A half-day course to explore and discover the possibilities of traditional letterpress printing. We will work closely with wood letters, ink, and printing equipment to create small format posters inspired by the futurist movement. Participants will play with onomatopoeia to create stunning typographic work. We promise is a lot of fun!
Workshop session starts with an introduction to letterpress and futurism. Sessions are designed for beginners from all professional backgrounds.
Ink different is a project that sits between the practice of graphic design and the traditional process of letterpress. It was founded in 2014 in Florence, by Paula Del Mas, graphic designer, Nino Triolo, artist printmaker, and Mathieu David, writer. Together they create contemporary typographic design using predominantly wood and metal type.
Nino Triolo is a visual artist, printmaker and professor who lives in Florence. His artwork have been presented in exhibitions around Europe, Argentina and China. He currently teach engraving and typography in different schools and at the Stamperia Minima within the cultural association L’Appartamento.
Paula Del Mas is an Argentinian graphic designer and architect. She is specialized in branding with a focus on typography and illustration.
