Teshrin: Part I
The rounded sibling of Kanun and Arabic counterpart of Typotheque's October.
Teshrin is the Arabic counterpart of Typotheque's October. Like its Latin counterpart, the full Teshrin type system includes, in addition to the normal width family, Compressed and Condensed widths in 9 weights each. Teshrin Compressed and Condensed will be published later this year.
Teshrin is well equipped for information signage and wayfinding projects, and includes a collection of transportation and travel-related signs, symbols, icons, and various sets of arrows.
Note on the name: The names Kanun and Teshrin are not direct translations of November and October, just as the design concepts are not. Literally, November and October would both be Teshrin in Arabic: Teshrin One & Teshrin Two. Kanun is the only other name of two months in Arabic (December & January). Kanun and Teshrin are connected in many familiar sayings. It made more sense to call the Arabic families as such.
