Fevzi Yazıcı was among the journalists arrested as a result of the political turmoil in Turkey. He was imprisoned for 6 years and 7 months until he was released on March 2, 2023. It was during this period that he realized the design of the font called “Firdevs”, which he had dreamed of throughout his professional life. “Firdevs” is perhaps the first font designed in prison.
The pictures that Yazıcı drew in his cell were exhibited in New York and Minnesota under the name “DARK WHITE” and its world tour still continues.
