Create your
own Ara-Block

Arabic is a connected script with most letters requiring four variations depending on their position in a word. Proposals and experiments that simplify Arabic were historically created to reduce its complexity adapting it to technologies and machines. 
Ara-block, is a simplified modular Arabic typeface created at the intersection of machine pixels and block-printing. In this workshop, participants used the Ara-blocks to create playful compositions that explore the modularity and rootedness of Arabic Letters.
