Ampersand wasn't the only type conference this past weekend. From June 15 to 18 a sizable part of the type world was in Istanbul, Turkey for the second ISType (Istanbul Type Seminars). This lecture and workshop series conceived by typographers / designers / educators Onur Yazıcıgil (Sabancı University) and Alessandro Segalini (Izmir University of Economics) is devoted to encouraging typographic literacy in Turkey. Although I couldn't attend I hope to be able to give some more news about this event in a future post. For now I invite you to discover the cool animated trailer for the conference.

Produced by Emre Parlak, the typographic animation uses Steve Matteson's sans/serif companions Droid Serif and Droid Sans.
