I dedicate this font family to Nima Yooshij (1896-1960), the great poet and innovator of Persian poetry. More…
Nima is a new creation of Naghi Naghashian. Nima design fulfills the following needs:
A. Explicitly crafted for use in electronic media fulfills the demands of electronic communication.
B. Suitability for multiple applications. Gives the widest potential acceptability.
C. Extreme legibility not only in small sizes, but also when the type is filtered or skewed, e.g., in Photoshop or Illustrator. Nima’s simplified forms may be artificial obliqued in InDesign or Illustrator, without any loss in quality for the effected text.
D. An attractive typographic image. Nima was developed for multiple languages and writing conventions.
Nima supports Arabic, Persian and Urdu. It also includes proportional and tabular numerals for the supported languages.
E. The highest degree of calligraphic grace and the clarity of geometric typography. This typeface offers a fine balance between calligraphic tradition and the Roman aesthetic common in Latin typography.
