Since 2006 until the beginning of 2015, Qassim Haider studied this kind of calligraphy/typography and developed a wide variety of logotypes and art design. He even developed a unique web application called “TypoGrid” to create this kind of typography. Qassim has designed and developed this style as font family with 8 different thickness styles in a very detailed and elaborate experience.
The font is available on qtypography.com/fonts, linotype, fonts.com & fontshop where you can take a trial and purchase it.
