Arabic letters are made of motions within.

Letters embody traces of millennia of gestures, thoughts, and artistic refinement. They are the body of civilizations’ contributions. 

As a researcher-practitioner, I strive to provide alternative pathways to designing Arabic typefaces, both in form and technology, in order to drive Arabic type to its utmost potential.

Since March 2015, I’ve been designing Arabic typefaces for multiple technologies. I regularly speak at type conferences and design events around the world.

In March 2016, I co-founded “Arabic Type Design - Beirut” with Kristyan Sarkis; it is the first international educational program dedicated to Arabic type design.
