Squarufic Type Design

This Arabic type design is inspired by Kufic script which is one of the oldest known scripts, it’s also distinct by it’s sharp geometric square shaped form hence the name; Squarufic.
The idea of designing detached Arabic lettertypes was originally created to solve the problems of 1950s’ technology, limited in the typesetting and printing of Arabic, which today is no longer the case. Therefore i designed this typeface to experiment and explore that same concept from a modern-day viewpoint and approach to the Arabic script.
