29LT ZARID Serif: A Bold and Vital Typeface
29LT Zarid Serif is a type family that bridges Arabic Naskh Mastari and Latin wedged scripts together. The letterforms exude extreme refinement and are designed with delicate varying contrast between light and heavy weights, open counters, as well as clean terminals and finials. The letterforms are sculpted with calligraphic makeup but drawn with a modern-day feel.
The styles balance between calligraphic angular cuts and unadorned construction. The letters in the light weights (Thin, Extra Light, Light and Regular) are drawn in low contrast and smooth curves, while the glyphs in the heavy weights (Medium, Semi Bold, Bold and Black) are marked by high contrast, crisp cuts and sharp pen strokes. Contrast in the letters, coupled with strong cuts and edges, give the font its vigorous attitude. The typeface’s strength and seriousness derive also from its advanced typographic features (ligatures, alternates and elongated stylistic sets). Moreover, the slanted styles give the type family an added typographic voice for highlight or emphasis.
Why It Is a Top Pick
29LT Zarid Serif embodies a sense of elegance, vitality and robustness. The typeface is suitable for a vast array of literature and educational publications besides branding and design projects.
