As “birthday gift” for the first 25 years (1995–2020), Tipoteca Italiana asked 25 designers and printers, from all over the world, to design and print a poster. The project 25×25. Tipoteca 25 was conceived in this way. Maximum freedom of creation was left, except for a few rules: the size (50 × 70 cm), the colors (maximum 4 colors), and the printing technique (letterpress). Over half of the posters were made directly in the printshops of the invited designers; instead, those who had no way of printing the poster in their studio were sent a Type-Kit, consisting of the digital scan of twenty typefaces from the Tipoteca archive with which they could design the posters. The print would have been performed by the Tipoteca Stamperia on the basis of the indications of colors, fonts, and layout established by each graphic designer. And so it was.
Martina Vincenti (San Miniato, Pisa) after studies in visual communication and graphic design, she started working for Oliviero Toscani Studio. In 2009 she founded her own graphic studio. In 2018 she discovers the ink and loses her head for letterpress printing. Currently freelance, she alternates the activity of letterpress printer to that of graphic designer.
