IMPORTANT ALERT: Linotype´s 1st Arabic Type Design Competition

Linotype Arabic Type Design Contest

Attention all designers: Linotype is running an Arabic Type Design Contest. This is exciting! Linotype used to be the best source of Arabic type in the pre-desktop publishing days (and also in the beginning of the DTP ear). It seems they regained interest in Arabic type (it’s about time too!).
