I started this project searching for typeface examples to have a background about what the topic takes about. Then I started taking photos for patterns to draw modules out of the patters
After collecting patters I traced the modules by a tracing paper and colored it to start making my letters and experiment the letters in Arabic and English.
I did 6 letters in English ” M, V, F, E, J,C “.
I did 5 letters in Arabic ” Alef, Baa, Waw, Lam and Meem”. After experimenting with letters I started making my modules in Glyphs and building my letters. I had chosen to do English letters in upper and lower case.
After finishing the upper case letters which took a lot of time building it, I started building the lower case. But I had a lot of fun building it and creating fonts.
Based on the upper case I stared playing and having fun crating the lower case which didn’t take much time as the upper case, I think that because I know how to build my own font now!!!!!.
After finishing the lower case letters I get so excited to start typing and using my font, so I typed my first typing in Wedesday I wrote ” Tasmeem Hekayat ” which was awesome!!!.
After I typed my new font I printed it out and hanged it on the hallway to have it critiqued, the critique helped me to see what is wrong in my letters and adjust them.
