Description

Qandus Latin is part of the Qandus multiscript font family consisting of a modern typographic interpretation of the unique Maghribi calligraphic style handwritten by al-Qandusi.

The concept was to design three styles that go beyond the difference in weight, extracted from the different textures of Qandusi’s manuscripts (Regular, Medium and Dark) and highlight three constructions: The Solid, the Fluid and the Original as a mixture of both forms. The Latin subfamily takes the Arabic as the starting point, and becomes an exploration of the reversed horizontal stress based on rotation, the limits between calligraphy and drawing; 
and the exuberance of the letterforms.

Qandus was developed within the framework of the Khatt Foundation’s type design research project: Typographic Matchmaking in the Maghrib (2015-2017), which curator is Huda Smitshuijzen AbiFarès. The designers are Laura Meseguer (Latin), Kristyan Sarkis (Arabic), and Juan Luis Blanco (Tifinagh).
The strong graphic language of the typeface design emphasizes and explores the variety and visual potential of the Maghribi style.
