Ruqah is a basic Arabic style that native pupils learn as their first writing. Despite that, its slanted baseline makes it underrepresented in typography, let alone in the digital realm. After his first trip to Egypt in 2016, Toshi Omagari decided to take on the challenge of creating a Ruqah typeface. Inspired by the wealth of classic film posters drawn in Ruqah, he set out to make one for himself. The result of the following five years is Klaket, a display face mechanically faithful to Ruqah but in a slightly unconventional stroke modulation and weight. During this presentation, Omagari will discuss his research and design process, as well as the technical hurdles and solutions to the slanted baselines.
