29LT ZEYN: A Graceful Multilingual Typeface
29LT Zeyn stands true to its name as it celebrates elegance and refinement. The typeface is drawn daintily with high pen contrast, giving it a polished look, a graceful flow, and a stylish high-class appeal.
The font design faithfully captures the essence and nuances of calligraphy, with Arabic ligatures and elongated stylistic sets enhancing the calligraphic look, while retaining extreme thick and thin pen strokes. Paired with strong cuts and edges, that contrast translates into a uniquely modern and sophisticated look. Underpinning novel letter structures are calligraphy-inspired letterforms but drawn in a freehand approach that lends the typeface a unique modern twist. Opting for open stroke makeup of descenders in letters such as “jeem”, “ha’”, “kha’”, “ain”, “ghain” rather than curving back into the main figure of the letter lends the typeface a forward-looking and sophisticated appearance. This is also exemplified in the loop structures in letters such as “fa’”, “qaf”, “waw”, designed using extra-extended strokes with thin endings, in contrast to a fully circular or triangular approach.
The Latin character set was developed in close synergy with its Arabic counterpart. Hence, the type family maintains a harmonious overall design approach.
WHY IT IS A TOP PICK
29LT Zeyn has a traditional calligraphic look, but with a modern and unique twist to it. It exudes a sense of richness, elegance and subtlety. All these qualities make it an excellent choice for high-end projects and stylish brands seeking to bring sophistication and refinement into focus.
