FontFont to sponsor ISType 2012
Last year Onur Yazıcıgil and Alessandro Segalini set up and organized ISType (Istanbul Type Seminars), to encourage and develop typographic literacy in Turkey. Their inaugural event was held in September 2011 and was a fantastic success, combining workshops with a series of lectures and creating a space where inspiration and ideas are exchanged and developed. This year’s ISType takes place in June 15–18 in Istanbul and we are delighted to announce that we will be supporting and sponsoring the event.
The theme for this year is Transmit and our very own Ivo Gabrowitsch (Marketing Director) will be giving a presentation on Enriched Typography using Open Type Features. This presentation will give attendees the opportunity to get in touch with the playful part of their “inner designer” and delve into the seemingly unlimited range of typographical possibilities. There will also be a sneak preview of the Next Big Thing: enriched web typography using OpenType features. Coming soon to a browser near you.
