Born in Palestine, he spent his youth in Ramallah, and has lived in Tokyo for the past 40 years.

In 2005, he made Beautiful Universe, a physics symbol font designed to illustrate his physics theory.

He visited Monotype In the mid-sixties at which time he patented (in the UK in 1965) a scheme to abbreviate the number of shapes to print Arabic. He created AlQuds (Arabic) fonts for the Tasmeem Adobe InDesign add-on (in 2008).

In a separate effort, he designed three funky font families: Maribei (Arabic), Kweeky (matching Latin, also available as 5-layer 3D font sets). Monmon (Arabic). [Google] [More]  ⦿
