Untitled Naive Arabic. 2016/17

These are the results of an introductory arabic type design workshop with Krystian Sarkis. I started out with virtually no knowledge of the script and came out with this untitled proposal for a fatface Maghribi desigb inspired by the work of the calligrapher Al-Qandusi.

I’m sure there’s plenty of mistakes I can’t quite see, nonetheless it was amazing to work with a script I had no knowledge about and which is totally different from my native latin; it really taught me a lot about drawing balancing shapes and got me interested in doing more of it.
