For decades, the Persian-born Naghi Naghashian has been working as a graphic designer and illustrator in Germany. Arian™ is his first commercial Arabic typeface.
Named after his mother, Naghi created the Arian typeface family after years of systematically analyzing the Arabic script.
The Arian design is sought to fulfill the many needs and was developed for multiple languages and writing conventions. It’s extremely legibilitable not only in small sizes, but also when the type is filtered or skewed. This typeface offers a fine balance between calligraphic tradition and the contemporary sans serif aesthetic now common in Latin typography.
