ABOUT







Titus Nemeth

Titus Nemeth runs TNTypography in Paris, and specializes in Arabic typeface design, typography and custom type. A 2006 graduate in the Master of Arts Typeface Design programme at the Department of Typography and Visual Communication, University of Reading, he also studied Arabic script at the École Supérier d'Art et de Design d'Amiens, France. Titus holds a PhD in Typography & Graphic Communication from the University of Reading, UK.

Originally from Vienna, he specialises in multi-script typeface design with an emphasis on the Arabic script. He lives in Paris. His Masters thesis researched the current state of Arabic newspaper type and typography and found acclaim by experts in the field (The current state of Arabic newspaper type and typography (2006, Reading: University of Reading)). Currently, he teaches type design at ESAD Amiens, France, and is a guest lecturer in the MATD program at the University of Reading.

The typeface Nassim (Latin/Arabic, his project at the University of Reading in 2006) was awarded the 'Certificate of Excellence in Type Design' at the TDC 2007, won the first prize in the original typeface design category of the European Design Awards 07 and was shortlisted by the Design Museum London for the exhibition "Designs of the Year 2007" in the category typography. It will be published by Rosetta Type in 2011. Titus Nemeth's research covers technological, linguistic and interdisciplinary aspects of multi-script typography and typeface design.

Ph.D. student at the University of Reading in 2012. Thesis topic: Arabic typography 1911-2011.

In 2008, he worked as an assistant professor of Graphic Design at Virginia Commonwealth University in Doha, Qatar and continued his work as a freelance designer and consultant. Designer of the futuristic typeface Wallflower (2004; he calls it a humanist stencil) and of Fra Bartolomeo (2004, based on the lettering on a sketch by Italian renaissance artist Fra Bartolomeo). Working on this serif face (2005). His talk at ATypI 2008 in St. Petersburg: Tasmeem, a new software jointly developed by WinSoft and DecoType, offers new perspectives for Arabic typeface design. Titus Nemeth was invited by the developers to be the first third party designer to get insights of the system, its methodologies and to actually design for Tasmeem. He was asked to convert his existing Nassim typeface from an OpenType based rendering, to rendering within Tasmeem. Hiba Studio interview.

At ATypI 2009 in Mexico City, he spoke about l'arabe maghrébin.

Since 2009 Titus has been teaching typography in Amiens. His typeface Aisha (2009) won an award in the non-Latin category at TDC2 2010, and was published at Rosetta Type in 2010. He states: Aisha is a multi-script typeface for Arabic and Latin. While the Arabic design is a revival of a metal fount inspired by Maghribi calligraphy, the Latin design was newly conceived and drawn to echoe the feel and look of the Arabic. Samples of Aisha: i, ii, iii, iv, v, vi, vii, viii, ix.

In 2011, Rosetta published Nassim and in 2016 Skolar Sans Arabic (as part of their large Sklolar Sans project).
