    Granted, I can’t read a majority of them, but they are very nice examples. Arabic typography and calligraphy has always struck me as beautiful

    Thank you for showing these. I have studied a little bit of Arabic and I also like to see Arabic typography and calligraphy. I wish I was talented to do such beautiful work.

    I loved the Bismillah, nice smooth modern font!

  • Joumana Medlej

    Failing is a ripoff, it’s a classical design that’s been around for centuries – I forget where the original is. They’re not all GOOD typography and many seem to be made by the same person, but they’re certainly visually striking.
    I just can’t help get a bit condescending about Arabic typography being suddenly all the rage in the West, leading people to rave over work that would seem uninteresting to those who actually work in the field.

    I’ve never seen so many arabic designs before. These designs are amazing. I’m going to look into this more to see what else I can dig up. Good job buddy.

    The stroke patterns for the Arabic part of Jalsah logo is actually a good starting point for making the Arabic version of Romain du Roi, Fournier, Baskerville, Bodoni and other Didones.
