ABOUT







Jamal Bustan

Jamal Bustan (b. Qunietra, Syria) lives in Damascus. He was commissioned to write the Mushaf (Quran) of Sheikh Maktoum, published in Dubai in 2003. This Quran is praised for the legibility of its calligraphy. Known for his calligraphic compositions, often based on Kufic styles, he received an award for his Kufic work from Tehran's First International Calligraphy Festival in 2009. In addition to working as the head of the lettering section at the Cartography Department in Damascus for 25 years, Jamal Bustan is also a graphic designer who produces book and magazine covers, logos, and Arabic typefaces. He taught calligraphy at the College of Arts at the Arab International University in Damascus.

In 2014, Mamoun Sakkal (Sakkal Design) published the Arabic typeface Bustan (done with Mamoun Sakkal). Bustan is inspired by Kairawani Kufic and cursive Sunbuli. Bustan Bold, which was designed by Jamal Bustan, developed by Mamoun Sakkal and programmed by Aida Sakkal, won an award in the TDC 2015 Type Design competition and at Granshan 2016.
