Istambulin: »Designing a font for a city, inspired by the city« (E)

»İstambulin« started as a BA graduation project but evolved to a digital type foundry which is to be launched in mid-2011. During the presentation, while flaunting the graphic history and vernacular heritage of the city Istanbul, I will showcase my graphic & typographic works all related and interacting with the city I am living in.
