Eco/ البيئة Ambigram in Arabic calligraphy

Fun little Arabic/English ambigram. Client wanted it to say البيئة in Arabic and ECO in English, for an environmental clean up project in Sudan. Made the teeth of beh, yaa’ and hamza little ripples of water.

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.

MediaLeisure was a funny miscommunication. Client described an example of some Arabic calligraphy/graphic design she had found, and wanted her company’s name in that style. Ok, sure, simple transliteration. Oops, turns out she had meant in latin characters.

Some Zoomorphic stuff.
