New Typographic Design features Al Mohtaraf work

08. 09. 2011

AlMohtaraf’s work is featured in Roger Fawcett-Tang and David Jury’s New Typographic Design, a publication of Laurence King Publishing. The book acts as a guide to contemporary typographic design, presenting a selection of applications over four broad axes: type as form, type as image, type as experiment, and type in motion. Mentioned in the book are our type designs in posters Modern and Midan; and our calligraphic booklet, Naktub Isman.
