ABOUT







Khajag Apelian

Freelance graphic designer from Lebanon. Born in Sharjah, UAE, an Armenian with a Lebanese nationality. Graduate of the Type and Media program at KABK, 2009. There, he designed Arek, an Armenian typeface specifically designed to replace the typefaces currently used in school books. It is a fresh interpretation of the ancient Armenian script used in the old manuscripts. My ambitious plan for this project is to include a serif and a sans serif version, containing upright and cursive forms, with multiple weights, display versions and initials. However, currently the project includes only the serif upright, regular and black weights, in addition to the cursive and the initials. This typeface was awarded First Prize in the Granshan 2010 competition for Armenian text types. Arek was finally published by Rosetta Type Foundry in 2012.

After graduation, he started freelancing as a graphic and type designer in Amsterdam. Partner at The Place.

Other typefaces include The Chattam (2009, a Clarendon revival), Boujour (2008, an ultra fat deco face), Moudwi (2007, an experimental Arabic detached typeface inspired by the Unified typeface created by Nasri Khattar).

His typefaces: Arek, Hagatir, Boujour (2008, piano key typeface), Mulsaq (2008, Arabic), Moudwi, Nuqat (2010: a dot matrix typeface by René Knip, Khajag Apelian, Jeroen van Erp, and Reza Abedini).

Graphic Arabic (Wael Morcos and Khajag Apelian) won an award at Granshan 2017.
