Mizan is an elegant, contemporary Naskh design that benefits from open counters and clear shapes that enhance its legibility.
Its low contrast makes it quite suitable for onscreen reading. The overall design is very pleasing, and the variety of styles promises more typographic fun still to come. The family can be used for a wide range of applications and offers a good foundation for contemporary designs.
The key to Mizan’s success is the way it combines relatively classical letterform proportions with an elegant movement of the curves. The result is a design that pays tribute to its classical heritage but is at the same time rooted in contemporary aesthetics.
Mizan also strikes a balance between aesthetics and legibility and, as such, provides a great starting point for graphic designers working with the Arabic script.
