Take a minute from your busy day to check out the collaborative, mobile and web app app called Nuqta (found on Apple). The app invites the public to post images of Arabic calligraphy and typography as they experience it anywhere, and on anything. Nuqta is open to anyone with a love for Arabic calligraphy and typefaces. The idea is to Learn, Share and Educate, so that you can learn from the content online, as well as educate others through what you post.

What does Nuqta mean?

A drop, mark, point or dot from which all letters emanate.

How does it work?

It’s simple. Take a photo; give it a name and description. Drop a pin (or Nuqta) on a map automatically, and share your image with the world.

You will be able to access the worldwide map facility through the Nuqta website. Features of the website will include online picture library, user profiles, the ability to browse the collection by location, style, and user.
