Custom Font for MINI
The brief was to create a range of inline Arabic typefaces to harmonize with the characteristics of the existing MINI Latin range of typefaces.
For the headline range (four weights) Boutros supplied a range that works in harmony with the existing MINI Latin range.
For the body text range (two weights) Boutros had to take into consideration
the serif ending of most of the characters and reduce it to the minimum, as well as redesigning some of the characters such as the medial ain to ensure that it did not look like the medial feh. All these treatments make the typeface very legible at small point size.
