Abjad Hos is a personal lettering project, the idea came up when I noticed that I’m not very comfortable lettering in Arabic and I'm new to lettering in general, I needed to practice to feel more confident with the letters.

I used to hear the two Words "Abjad Hos" a lot back in primary school and I've always liked the way it sounds. If you look it up you might find different stories about what it means, and I wanted to use words that have a vague meaning to play with freely.


In this project I wanted to experiment with as many styles as I can, it got harder at the end especially that I have no experience in Arabic lettering or Arabic calligraphy. But this practice helped train my eyes to spot errors in my work which I would say is a great improvement.
