Kameel Hawa is a graphic designer from Lebanon who early on found himself working in the graphics departments of some of Beirut’s progressive journals. In 1980 he relocated to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where he founded his creative atelier, Al Mohtaraf. In his practice, Hawa blends his inquisitive writer’s talent with an innate love of drawing and creating innovative and modern editorial content and visual structure. This book focuses on Hawa’s Arabic handwriting, lettering, and typeface designs, which break with rigid calligraphic rules, yet are also sensitive to Arab heritage and reflect its contemporary culture, setting new aesthetic standards and inspiration for designing with Arabic letterforms.
