30 Examples of Beautiful Arabic Typography

The languages, aesthetics, and calligraphy of other cultures can open up new avenues for typography lovers and graphic artists, who can use a script like Arabic as a new framework within which to express their creativity.

By finding innovative ways in which to present Arabic letter shapes and markings, while also striving to incorporate the culture’s handwriting techniques and themes, designers are given a new area of inspiration and challenge.

The thirty examples of Arabic typography and calligraphy below show a wide range of approaches to playing with the language. Some designers opt to go the traditional route, creating designs that speak to scrolls of poetry or incorporate traditionally Arabic design elements, colors, and images.

Others throw tradition out the window and show how the language can be adapted to a contemporary aesthetic. In this camp, you will find the use of geometric shapes, bold fonts, and modern graphics that speak more to the visuals of computers and video games than they do to any cultural or historical symbols. Still other designers choose a simple and streamlined approach, allowing the curves, lines, and shapes of the letters to simply speak for themselves.

    Its amazing, arabic typography its something really challenge for people like us that read in other way, and maybe perceibe in other way, i wish i know the language, would be really interesting.

    I love this collection, there’s a certain mystique surrounding Middle Eastern languages. Having said that though, I guess that’s only because I don’t understand them – the same happened before I learnt Japanese, if I remember rightly.

    Good work though, love all of them.
