Balkan is a new typeface system that consists of Latin and Cyrillic scripts. The use of Latin and Cyrillic typifies the former Yugoslavian countries, today Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro. The Balkan typeface system is a series of fonts that decodes Latin and Cyrillic; it demystifies, depoliticizes, and reconciles them for the sake of education, tolerance and, above all, communication. Though Balkan is a “font” in the usual sense, it is also capable of translating Croatian Latin into Serbian Cyrillic and vice versa. One could therefore think of it as educational software capable of reconciling discrete scripts.
