Hey Everyone,

If anyone is interested in submitting to this competition I would be happy to help you and give you feedback/technical help.

Call For Submission: The Mashrebiya Font Competition
Submit your design by 30th of June 2017.
The Khatt Foundation is launching a novel type design competition that aims to add culture-specific fonts to the Arab visual culture, fonts specifically designed to produce modern Mashrebiya architectural screens.

The Mashrebiya screen is an iconic element of Arab/Islamic architecture. Mashrebiyas are still popular as separation screens or walls, however they are often constructed from complex geometrical parts and shapes, and rarely using only letters. There are no fonts around that are specially designed for producing this kind of translucent screens.

Each award winner will be paid € 1000,- plus an 3D award produced in their own winning font design.

Who can participate
The competition is open to all members of the Khatt Foundation online community, those interested that are not members can sign up for free as new members on the Khatt Foundation's website (

This is a reminder that our midterm exam is tomorrow at 2:00pm. Please note that your attendance is mandatory and failing to attend the exam will result in a failing grade for your midterm. Unfortunately at this stage I cannot accommodate makeup exams because the midterm grades are due on the 17th March.

Thank you for understanding and wishing you the best of luck! :)

Following his classic work Book from the Sky, the Chinese artist Xu Bing presents a new graphic novel -- one composed entirely of symbols and icons that are universally understood. Xu Bing spent seven years gathering materials, experimenting, revising, and arranging thousands of pictograms to construct the narrative of Book from the Ground. The result is a readable story without words, an account of twenty-four hours in the life of "Mr. Black," a typical urban white-collar worker.

Interesting video debunking some of the myths surrounding Islam!


Dear Students,

Please make sure you come to Tuesday's class with SIGNIFICANT developments and fully prepared.

As mentioned last class we will have a fake deadline on Thursday, meaning you need to come to class with your 'finalized' work for a critique and final feedback. Tuesday 14th is Sports day, so that will be the last round of feedback you get from us!

We are both very excited to see your developments!
