Damascus Modular Typeface

The Damascus Modular Typeface is based on the Omayyad Mosque in Damascus, Syria. Known for its pillars that stretch across the mosque's courtyard, I decided to dissect the form of the pillars and create a modular grid system that would allow me to design a typeface with the mosque's characteristics. The concept and style of the typeface were also considered to ensure that each letter can be connected to replicate the arcade of the mosque. A type specimen and artefact were also made to showcase the modular type.
