The workshop will consist of a series of five sessions covering the complex process of Arabic typeface design, from the creative inception phase, to drawing the letterforms, to learning font editing tools and producing a digital Arabic font. Khajag Apelian will team up with Pascal Zoghbi to lead the 4th part of the workshop series. Read more at www.khtt.net.

This font development is similar to the birth of Arial or Helvetica in English. “The results were stunning,” added Bahmani. (…) Bahmani tested NASSIM against the TAHOMA font and concluded that “the results demonstrated a 5x increase in reading speed.” (…) The new Persian VOA site (as shown in the graphic above) “was extremely well received and many users commented on how much better the site looks and how much more readable the text appears; there are no spacing, no kerning, and no proportion flaws,” added Bahmani.

We are very proud to find out that three of our typefaces have been selected. Nassim was reviewed by Thierry Blancpain of Grilli Type, Neacademia by Florian Hardwig, and Sutturah, the typeface with taste for loose women, was supremely sketched by Nicole Dotin of the Process Type Foundry fame.
