ABOUT







Zeynep Akay

Type designer based in London. She designed the free Google Font Rakkas in 2016: Rakkas is a single-weight display typeface that supports the Arabic and Latin scripts. The Arabic design is inspired by Ruq'ah lettering on Egyptian movie posters from the 50s and 60s, and makes use of contextual alternates to emulate calligraphy. The Latin design is angular and German expressionist.
