29LT ZEYN: A Graceful Multilingual Typeface
29LT Zeyn is drawn with extreme refinement and high pen contrast that unveils modernity in a stylish approach. The polish outlines in the typeface makes it suitable for high-end projects and brands to highlight their sophistication.
Each letter was designed to ensure that all of the calligraphy’s extreme thick and thin pen strokes were preserved. That contrast was coupled with strong cuts and edges to give the font a crisp contemporary feel. Novel letter structures were attributed to the letterforms that were inspired by the calligraphic makeup but drawn in a freehand approach. Selected cases are the open stroke makeup of the descenders in the letters (Jeem, Ha’, Kha’, Ain, Ghain…) instead of curving back into the main figure of the letter, and the loop structures in the letters (Fa’, Qaf, Waw…) were created in an original manner, using extra-extended strokes with thin endings, as opposed to the fully circular or triangular approach. The Arabic ligatures and elongated stylistic sets give the typeface more calligraphic characteristics. These were added to enhance the script’s ‘elegance’, and elegant is, after all, what Zeyn means.
A number of elements bring both Arabic and Latin scripts together: the design approach, open counters, proportions, terminals and finials, weight and contrast. Both scripts were created in synergy and were inspired by each other simultaneously.Read more
