Al nab Typeface

  • AlNab Typeface
    An NDU Assignment 2012
  •  An arabic typeface based on the concept of contract between thick and thin lines and inspired by the vampire teeth. The process lead me to a result which kept the feeling of the naskhi style implementing my inspiration into the calligraphic forms. 

     I constructed the basic calligraphy form of the Naskhi style through the Grid at 60 degrees. Afterwards, I took tracing paper and used the outline of my new inspiration to recreate the naskh style font. I took the necessary meaurements on the tracing paper and started implementing them in fontlab.
