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 Zarid Stencil typeface is the cut version of 29LT Zarid Sans and comes in 8 weights: Thin, Extra Light, Light, Regular, Medium, Semi Bold, Bold and Black. It is the sixth inline family member within the 29LT Zarid superfamily ongoing development since 2016.
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.
