Al Mohtaraf is featured in ‘Arabic for Designers’

01. 03. 2007

AlMohtaraf’s work is featured in Mourad Boutrous’s ‘Arabic for Designers’, a publication from Mark Batty Publishers. The book puts on stage the issue of Arabic typography and its application in graphic design, focusing on a number of case studies where Arabic type is either successfully employed or mistreated. Showcased in the book are our visual identities for Hiwar, Hiwar Al Arab, and Jana Al Ard; as well as our publications for the Fikr conference series, the Jubail 2 Mega Complex, and the Oum Kolthoum encyclopedia.
