Wadi Type

Wadi is a modern Arabic typeface designed by Dinah Merhej who is currently studying at at Central Saint Martins College.

“Wadi is a simplified modern Arabic typeface influenced by the Naskh calligraphic style. It is characterized by the absence of straight baseline and the cursive connection between the glyphs. Furthermore, Wadi consists of thin vertical strokes and thick horizontal strokes. The typeface looks more dynamic, sophisticated and harmonious. The letters have big open counters that facilitate legibility when reduced to small size. Wadi is modern, clear and legible. It can be used for headings, sub-headings, newspapers, magazines,books, advertising and promotional materials.”
