“Re: Re: is a project in which the
two graphic designers Yunus Ak and Umut Altıntaş send each other letters using
their typographic vocabulary, text, word, and writing that becomes completely
abstract, marked, complicated, simplified, and meaningless.
The letters sometimes refer to
certain reference points in the world of art or design. These references can be
deciphered for those who know this world well or they can find new meanings in
their own way for those who are not familiar with this universe. This act of
correspondence opens to endless possibilities of meaning. The dialog can seem
more obvious when read in chronological order as in the book, but at the same
time, countless different pairings can be made.
The project consists of letters
between Yunus Ak and Umut Altıntaş. These 206 letters, in which different ways
of correspondence are sought and turned into a typographic dialog between two
designers, come together in the book carefully printed by Ofset Yapımevi.
