Designer’s Concept:
Thuraya is an Arabic display typeface that explores a contemporary context for the complex Diwani style with maximized calligraph- ic features. The research focused on the meeting point between calligraphy and type within a digital type environment and questioned the possibility of compromises on one account or the other. The completely curved baseline, the horizontally slanted letters, and the extended character set including ligatures and alternates, which are crucial for a harmonious calligraphic flow, are characteristics that define Thuraya. It is mainly intended for lettering purposes, headlines, logotypes, and short texts.
