This typeface design and style was inspired by Tim Holloway’s Markazi typeface, with his encouragement, and initiated by Gerry Leonidas as a joint University of Reading and Google project.
The Arabic glyphs have been made by Borna Izadpanah and design directed by Fiona Ross, they feature a moderate contrast. It requires its cues in the award-winning Markazi typeface, affording a contemporary and extremely readable typeface.
The complementary Latin glyphs were made by Florian Runge. It keeps in spirit with its Arabic counterpart, echoing crucial design characteristics whilst getting rooted in established Latin traditions. It can be an open and clear style using a compact stance and an evenly flowing rhythm.
The family is available in 4 weights with extended language assistance suited for print and screen.
