What is Tarkeeb

Tarkeeb is an online platform created by Nour Chamoun that facilitates the creation of a community of emerging designers and type professionals to share and promote their Arabic typographic projects – including font design, lettering, and other typographic explorations. This provides Arabic type foundries a place to explore and access talent. With English dominating the internet experience, online representation for native Arabic speakers has been scarce, partially because of a limited variety of Arabic web fonts, online Arabic typographic works, and resources pertaining to Arabic typography. By providing an online collection of Arabic typographic works and an opportunity for designers to be discovered, the platform aims to aid the advancement of Arabic online communication.
