Instructor: Nadine Chahine

The Arabic script is one of the most complex writing systems. This workshop aims to give a solid start to understanding how this script is built, its various stylistic interpretations, as well as current trends in Arabic type design. Participants will work on several short exercises in both lettering and type design.

She has a BGD in Graphic Design, an MA in Typeface Design from the University of Reading, and is a PhD candidate at Leiden University. She taught Arabic type design at universities in Dubai and Beirut. She has won the Dean’s Award for Creative Achievement from AUB and two Awards for Excellence in Type Design from TDC in 2008 and 2011.
