Thursday 13th of November 2008 the typeface was presented at the Special Collections of the University Library of the University of Amsterdam.
Nestor of Dutch graphic design Wim Crouwel held a speach about the Government as client.
Also Fiona Atighi, leader of project team 1 Logo of the Ministry of General Affairs talked about the reason for adapting a custom typeface for this big operation. Nearly 200 organisations are going to be changed in this uni-identity.
