ABOUT







Mohamad Dakak

Type designer from Syria who graduated from Damascus University and completed the MATD program in Type Design at the University of Reading in 2016. He is currently located in Cambridge, UK. His graduation typeface is Jali, about which he writes: Jali is a typeface designed for wayfinding signage. High legibility from distance is the main feature of the design. Jali combines Arabic and Latin in harmony while keeping a natural treatment for both scripts and avoiding forcing any to follow the other. Jali offers two secondary styles for different functions. Jali Display is a highly characterful style to add a distinguished identity in various contexts. Jali text comes to support setting running text for continuous reading. Jali won an award at the Type Directors Club's Type Design Competition 2019.

In 2021, Kostas Bartsokas, Mohamad Dakak and Pria Ravichandran set up Foundry 5 Limited. At Foundry 5, Dakak released Jali Arabic, Jali Greek and Jali Latin in 2021.
