Our studio is multilingual, we speak fluent English, Arabic, French, Chinese, and Italian. Since we use a variety of scripts everyday as designers, we wanted to explore how these scripts compare, and create a place for the conversations we have around typography, so we set up Type Map at Right to Left.
Here we start by looking at fundamentals rules of type, leading, kerning, modularity in chinese and arabic and we will be building this as we go. We are inviting submissions from designers who work in a variety of scripts, so share with us your take on your language on the submit button at the end of this page.
This is an on-going research initiated by Right to Left in March 2022 and is currently shared on this page and our social media @rightoleft_studio.
