Nassim and Axia


Today we look at Titus Nemeth’s Nassim with Sibylle Hagmann’s Axia. Nassim was concurrently designed to work across Latin and Arabic scripts. The two are not only stylistically cohesive, but structurally complementary. By the way, if you need fonts that support both Arabic and Latin, see the Nassim Arabic Bundle.



Looking closely at Nassim, I found in Axia a nice bit of symmetry in its angular nature, high joins, seemingly arbitrary shearpoints in the curves, and overall open structure. Used to each’s advantage, their combination comes off with a contemporary feel and inviting tone.
