TypeAraby is an experimental platform dedicated to the creation, preservation, and evolution of Arabic typography and type design. It was initiated by the Graphic Design Department at VCUarts Qatar as a laboratory space for cultivating a contemporary vision for the Arabic type while maintaining and promoting its traditional calligraphic roots as an important mechanism for language sustainability. The platform is a springboard for events, workshops, lectures, exhibitions, and publications that engage local, regional, and international creative communities.
