Fresh sketches yield new direction.

“Thank God,” or, “Thanks be to God.”
Above: MCAD student Max, from a recent email offering new directions in his experiments with our common Arabic cell type problem. Most positive, Max’s sketches show a typographic bent, where early on it was more tempting to seek a visual,
or ‘designed’ solution.
As always, our group welcomes any critique or insight, especially from native Arabic or Farsi speakers. Our efforts are essentially experimental, but most of all, we hope to learn from a larger audience and open new doors. Please feel free to join in!
Many thanks for sharing these, Max. It is really a delight, and one wonders where this will lead. Ne var, ne yok?
