Tubqal Pro multiscript

Tubqal was initially one of the three type families developed within the Typographic Matchmaking in the Maghrib 3.0  joint project. Set out, led  and  coordinated by the Khatt Foundation, it took place in 2015 and 2016 in different cities of Morocco and the south of Spain.

Among other goals, this cooperative experience sought the creation of a bunch of fonts that would meet the need for multi-script typefaces in the region. All of them were based on vernacular styles, concerning for the most part the Arabic script and its Maghribi variants.

Tubqal is inspired by the Maghribi Mabsout sub-style, a variant traditionally used in extensive reading texts. It is a low contrast hand and the structure of the letters is fairly rigid, closer to the Kufic stillness than to other more fluent styles like Naskh. Mabsout was also the starting point to consider the main features that would guide the design of the Latin and Tifinagh scripts, not only in its formal attributes but also its spirit and the way it could be translated from the Arabic to the other two scripts respecting each one’s idiosyncrasy and peculiarities.

Tubqal Pro, developed by Andreu Balius and Juan Luis Blanco, is an extended update of Tubqal. The Latin and Tifinagh parts were redrawn for a more consistent stroke modulation and contrast. Up to six weights have been developed, and in the case of Tifinagh and Latin, italics have been added. To sum up, Tubqal Pro is a modern, complete and versatile tri-script type family ideal for texts that seek to convey a contemporary Maghribi flavour.

Tubqal Pro is available at Blancoletters and Typerepublic.
