Typeface Designer: Nadine Chahine, Bad Homburg, Germany
Foundry: Linotype GmbH
Language: Arabic
Designer’s Concept:
The Palatino® Sans Arabic typeface family is a collaboration between Lebanese designer Nadine Chahine and Prof. Hermann Zapf. The design is based on classical Naskh structures and proportions, and with a hint of Thuluth. The forms, though, are treated as if written with a pen, rather than a reed. This results in curves that are soft, round, and friendly. It is designed for use in print, and brings into Arabic the informal and friendly appearance of Palatino Sans. The counters are wide open to allow for better readability in small sizes as well as to maintain an open and friendly appearance. Because of its classical reference, Palatino Sans Arabic is also well suited for setting spoken Arabic as well as children’s books.
