Those of us in the design community who know, admire and have worked with Fevzi Yazici are saddened to hear of his arrest. 

Fevzi is not just the talented art director of Zaman, one of the best designed newspapers in the world, but also a tireless organizer of design conferences to encourage the study of newspaper/editorial design, a passion that he shared with the rest of the world via his annual +1T Design Days conference in Istanbul. I, like many other designers from around the world, have been honored to speak at this conference and that is how we got to know about Fevzi and the incredibly good work he has carried out.

To have one of us arrested in the midst of the political turmoil now embracing Turkey is definitely sad news and I hope that we all become aware of what Turkey's citizens are presently going through . Fevzi is one of many journalists 

We are all in total solidarity with Fevzi and his fellow journalists who find themselves in the middle of this surrealistic----but very realistic----situation.
