Mahmut Suner, underwater adventurer, cinematographer, former dive centre owner, and neighbour to us here in Datça, asked us to look at the jacket for his new book on the dive sites of the seas around the peninsular.
Mahmut has published 4 books over the years, his most recent being The Dive Sites of Bodrum where he lived up until recently.
The new book, like his others is to be published in English and Turkish, so we needed a solution that was bi-lingual – so we tried a few options. The strongest solution was simply Scuba Datça.
The word Datça also presented us with the opportunity to be playful with the cedilla – which we experimented with, intiall trying it as a fish, a diver in scuba gear, eventually settling on making it an air supply and mask.
We then combined this typography with some stunning under water photography, the results of with are published below.
Mahmut was very pleased with the results.
So, much so, we think we can confidently describe Mahmut Suner as an underwater adventurer, cinematographer, former dive centre owner, neighbour to us here in Datça... and a happy client too.
