29LT Azal: A Free Geometric Display Font
29LT Azal is a sturdy geometric font with contemporary Arabic features that are inspired by the old Eastern Kufic manuscripts and drawn in a modern-day approach, and old is, after all, what Azal means in Arabic. It is a display font with prominent and sturdy design characteristics. Each letter structure is designed to create a balance between solid base forms and elegant terminals. The font structure is a mixture of: high contrast between thick and thin pen strokes, diagonal skeleton, small counters, thick baseline and sharp edges contrasted by circular dots.
The font corresponds to the old manuscripts that were hand-drawn by the “qalam”– which is a type of pen made from a dried reed, used for Islamic calligraphy. To emphasize the usage of this technique, each set of novel letter structures has a different angle that gives the typeface a dynamic feature.Read more
