29LT ZARID Stencil: A Vernacular Typeface
29LT Zarid Stencil typeface is part of the larger Zarid series family type. It brings the elegance and cleanness of the corporate Zarid Sans and merges it with a hip and revolutionary vibe.
This font is the result of lengthy research and experimentation of different routes that led to a deep understanding of the flow within Arabic and Latin letters. This comprehensive work and testing of different routes helped in circumventing rigid stencil feel and avoid compromising the integrity of the glyphs.
A dynamic and flexible stencil approach was ultimately applied, allowing the font to go efficiently in stylistic directions without alienating neither the Arabic nor the Latin glyphs. Because both scripts are of a humanistic nature, cuts were implemented without any interruption in the pen movement. The two distinct scripts agreeably coexist in look and feel with each one retaining its own structure and characteristics.
The typeface retains all the advanced typographic features such as ligatures and stylistic sets that were already present in Zarid Sans. Where it departs, however, is in the transformation of broad pen angle into one of the five different types of cuts. This translated into a unique rhythm and an improved readability flow.
WHY IT IS A TOP PICK
29LT Zarid Stencil has excellent legibility characteristics. It also gives a stylish stencil effect and comes in handy when making bold statements.
29LT ZARID Superfamily: Diversity and Cohesiveness
Diverse and well thought-out, 29LT Zarid Superfamily is a set of typefaces crafted to work together in close harmony and provide visual cohesion. The typefaces share basic characteristics and common designs yet with differing styles and individual variances, each standing on its own as a useful, distinctive type.
29LT Zarid Superfamily retains a balance between calligraphic angular cuts and unadorned construction. The letterforms are inspired by calligraphic makeup but are rather drawn with a contemporary interpretation. The contrast in the letters is coupled with strong cuts and edges lending the font its crowning robust characteristic.
Arabic and Latin scripts are inspired by one another and match each other. Their synergistic sco-design provide even greater cohesiveness to the superfamily.
WHY IT IS A TOP PICK
29LT Zarid Superfamily is a design tool for graphic designers to explore endless typographic possibilities and explore different communication complexities in their projects.
