Letterpress Workers

Letterpress Workers International Summit

2012 – Art direction, btl, printing

IT/ Letterpress Workers è un raduno annuale di stampatori e designer provenienti dall’Europa e dalle Americhe, che si tiene a Milano dal 2012. Dal 2014, per rafforzare il rapporto tra i membri, abbiamo deciso di fare una pubblicazione annuale in combo con una raccolta di stampe tipografiche realizzate dai partecipanti. Tutte le edizioni utilizzano differenti font, messe a disposizione gratuitamente da diversi type designer. Questo è quello che chiamiamo “social network fisico”.

EN/ Letterpress Workers is an annual meeting of printers and designers from Europe and Americas, helds in Milano since 2012. In 2014, in order to empower the relationship between the members, we decided to do an annual publication in combo with a collection of letterpress prints done by the participants. All the editions use also digital fonts, made available free of charge by different type designers. This is what we call “physical social network”.
