Description
When the Square Kufic writings were originated in the middle east more than six centuries ago, It was a major addition to the entire Arabic scripting. It was fresh, unique and proportionate. Some believe that it was derived from the architectural adaptations in the area where artists and architects had a long tradition of applying patterns to buildings or even to coins in various square grids. Today I am glad to contribute that marvelous script with my new addition "Kufigraph". Kufigraph is an Arabic font based on a very simplified geometric script. The base line in Kufigraph falls in the absolute center between equal ascenders and descenders in almost all the letters and that supports the balance. The anatomy of some letters was completely re-designed in order to meet the new structure and that created a unique visual identity to the script. I consider Kufigraph more than just an enjoyable project for me to work in, but it is my personal contribution to the Arabic scripting.

  • كوفيغراف هو خط عربي هندسي ذو سمات بصرية مميزة وقد تم تطويره من اجل المشايع الإبتكارية ذات الطابع العصري. هذا المشروع ذو مكانة خاصة لدي لكونه مدخلاً لي إلى عالم التايبوغرافيا العربية. أعتبر خط كوفيغراف بمثابة الامتداد العصري للخط الكوفي الهندسي العريق
     
    When the Square Kufic style of writing was originated in the Middle East more than six centuries ago, It was considered at that time as a major addition to the Arabic script because it was fresh, unique and proportionate. Some believe that it was derived from the architectural adaptations in the area where artists and architects had a long tradition of applying patterns to buildings or even to coins in various square grids. Today I am glad to continue the development of this very geometric style, follwing the same line with my new addition "Kufigraph".

    Kufigraph is an Arabic font based on a very simplified geometric script. It combines the ancient Square Kufic script with a modern digital robotic look. The base line in Kufigraph falls in the absolute center between equal ascenders and descenders in almost all the letters supporting its balance. The anatomy was completely re-designed in order to meet the new structure and that created a unique visual identity. For me, Kufigraph was more than just an enjoyable project, but it is my personal contribution to the Arabic scripting.
