Horouf Design Competition

The 2014 Horouf Type Design Competition saw these winners: Sultan Mohammad (gold medal for Change), Ferran Milan (silver medal for Baldufa), Ahmad Al Hindi (bronze medal for Zamalka). This bilingual (Latin / Arabic) type design competition was initiated by Nuqat and 29Letters. The results were announced in December 2014 at the Nuqat Design Conference in Kuwait. The jury consisted of Huda AbiFares (of the Khatt Foundation), Kameel Hawa (of Mohtaraf), Mouneer Shaarani (Arabic calligrapher), Peter Bilak(of Typotheque), Patrick Giasson (of Loose Atom), and Reza Abedini (Iranian graphic designer). This sentence is interesting: Whilst the jurors are all excited to take part in the very first annual Horouf design competition for typography design, they agree that this year's entries left much to be desired in terms of innovation and technical execution. This is reflected by their reluctance to award any first prizes.
