He went and made it to the front page! :-)

Our graduate student Servet Ulaş has just published a highly thought provoking post on his own blog. I urgently advise everyone who is interested in typeface design to go and read it:

Duru is an ongoing multilingual font project, which consists of four weights with small caps and alternate glyph sets with accompanying italics. Italics are to be included in the font specimen booklet in May 2011.

The creator of “Duru” is our very own Onur Yazıcıgil, also co-blogger here at Acemi Çaylak, and a much valued faculty member of our university since Fall 2009. He and I co-teach the main Graphic Design course of the 3rd year and he is one of the greatest colleagues and friends that one could ever hope for. And… one talented cookie, as the following will show:

Note: Duru is due to be distributed through an internationally renowned professional type foundry in the near future. So, please stand by for updates!
