29LT KAFF, A NEW MULTILINGUAL TYPEFACE
the font set is also suitable for the everyday use for any kind of project. Each weight includes 1150-plus glyphs that accommodate Arabic, Persian, Urdu and Western and Eastern European languages. The Arabic character set, designed by Zoghbi, is inspired from the Naskh calligraphic styles, while the Latin, designed by Party, is based on a neogrotesque sans serif roman style. It is type family created for maximum legibility and easy usability. The letterforms are drawn with extreme refinement and low contrast between the thick and thin pen strokes. A number of elements bring both scripts together: the design approach, proportions, weight and contrast. Zoghbi and Party didn’t want to sacrifice the value or esthetics of one scripts to the other, hence they approached the same design brief of an adequate typeface from the different aspects of Arabic and Latin scripts. They acknowledged the differences between the two scripts and respect them instead of compromising one for the other.
