Font Designer – Tehmina Rauf
The British designer Tehmina Rauf created the font Linotype Araby Rafique™ in 1997. Araby Rafique is a part of the TakeType Library, winners of Linotype’s International Digital Type Design Contest. The forms lean sometimes left, sometimes right, which, combined with the stroke contrast, gives the font a dynamic character. Other distinguishing characteristics are the mix of teardrop and fine hair strokes and the handwritten style. This font is good for very short texts and headlines, especially when the look of the text is as important as its meaning.
