Year: 2012—2014
Supervisor: Damoon Khanjanzadeh
Achievements: 3rd Silver Cypress Biennial, Imam Ali Museum, Tehran, Iran, 2013 | “Alef” Exhibition, Imam Ali Museum, Tehran, Iran, 2013



Mehraz is a high-contrast Perso-Arabic display typeface with calligraphic letterforms. The contrast flow of Mehraz is drawn by Naskh and Sols calligraphic scripts but it has been refreshed by simplifying the curvature to acheive a more contemporary feeling.

The lack of calligraphic display typefaces for Arabic writing system makes Mehraz one of the few in it's own kind. Mehraz is optimized for headlines and short paragraphs.
