- Katibeh (2015-2016). A free Google web font for Arabic and Latin. Katibeh is a headline font based on the Naskh script, infused with some qualities of the Thuluth script. Arabic design by Kourosh Beigpour, Latin design by Eduardo Tunni, engineering by Lasse Fister. Github link. They write: Jomhuria is a dark Persian/Arabic and Latin display typeface, suitable for headline and other display usage. The name means republic, and the spark of inspiration for the design was a stencil of Shablon showing just a limited character set just for the Persian language without any marks, vowels or Latin glyphs. Shablon was designed 30 years ago in Iran, and is reinterpreted by Kourosh to incorporate contemporary techniques, aesthetics and of course some personal taste. While inspired by the spirit of Shablon, Jomhuria is a new typeface that stands on its own. Kourosh created an additional original Latin design that is tailored to harmonize with the aesthetics of the Persian/Arabic design. Open Font Library link.
