Variable Fonts : Varied & Flexible

One file can now do what many files had to do separately: it contains a whole type family, if not a whole super family. Whereas before, each standard (or static) font was accommodated in one file, and each file is one style of the typeface. Now everything is opened up. One compressed TrueType or WOFF2 (Web OpenFont Format 2) file has a whole family of fonts in a versatile design space, including all the styles in itself and everything in between.

29LT Okaso : A Typeface Abstracted from Aljamiado Manuscripts

29LT Okaso is a vibrant geometric typeface with distinctive letterforms. The outlines of its letters challenge traditional structures while preserving legibility. It incorporates a carefully studied balance between solid forms and dynamic contours, giving it a lively feature within a corporate and serious existence. The Arabic character set is inspired by a unique set of letters found in vernacular Aljamiado manuscripts, and its accompanying Latin is drawn with alternating letterforms to echo the active nature of the Arabic script and its lively flow.

Multi-Script 29LT Fonts

29LT is progressing from a bi-script Arabic and Latin digital type industry into a multi-script fonts entity. The global market we live in and the continuous integration of different cultures is demanding the need for multi-script type systems.

29LT Zawi : A Seriously Rhythmic Typeface

29LT Zawi is a present-day simplified typeface drawn with extreme refinement incorporating a mono-linear structure that unveils causality within a corporate atmosphere. A mixture of straight vertical, horizontal, and diagonal letter structures fused in-between sharp corners and edges give the typeface a dynamic characteristic and rhythmic feel. Its straight terminals and mono-spaced Latin letters lend the typeface a young and contemporary image that makes it suitable for diverse number of projects from fun and urban to serious and corporate.

29LT Zarid Display : A Contrasted Typeface

29LT Zarid Display is the valiant version of 29LT Zarid Text. In the Arabic script, the neo-Naskh glyphs transform into amalgams inspired by both the Thuluth and the Naskh calligraphic styles. Thuluth is considered as the most elegant style in classical Arabic calligraphy that was crafted for important writings. Naskh is however known as the common style designed for standard copy text. The design decision adopted to blend these two realms together gives the typeface a unique characteristic and makes it offer a new Arabic typographic hierarchy option. In the equivalent Latin script, the letters gain vertical contrast inspired by the pointed-pen expansion principle, whilst keeping a hint of the broad-nibbed pen translation structures in the bowls and finials. This design choice gives Zarid Display Latin a unique appearance and preserves consistency with the rest of the type family as well as bridging the Latin and Arabic scripts together.

29LT Zarid Text : A Legible & Lucid Typeface

Improved legibility in small point size and habitual appearance are its key characteristics.

29LT Riwaya : A story, within a story, within a story.

Type offers so many possibilities to give depth and atmosphere when reading a book– just like our voices would when telling stories.
