Some mashriqi for a client in Dubai. Funny story, did a first iteration in a very modern, graffiti-stylized calligraphy style, client comes back and says they’d like something more modern, and send some examples of my Kufi Mashriqi style, so I came up with this. Cool thing is, Mashriqi was actually developed in the 9th and 10th centuries CE, making it by far the oldest style on my site. But, by modern design aesthetics, looks modern. One of the reasons I love Arabic calligraphy.
