I am currently pursuing my masters in Design + Technology at Parsons the New School for Design in New York. For my thesis, I am building an online platform for emerging designers to open source and share fonts they have created and need help on perfecting. This is an outlet for them to get feedback from professional users and/or get other users to contribute by collaborating with them on their fonts. The goal is to produce finished fonts with a list of contributors and that is available for free to download for web and print use.
The aim is to advance Arabic typography and provide more accessible Arabic fonts online, impacting and democratizing the way we express the Arabic language.
For any suggestions, proposals for the platform, or an interest in contributing or getting involved, please get in touch!
