Plex Arabic was designed to complete IBM’s corporate font families. Inspired by the Paul Rand IBM logo, the design echoes the company’s design ethos: an organic mix of engineered and humanistic shapes. The design of the Arabic translates centuries of calligraphic conventions into a modern typographic context. The family is published as an open source project and is available for free on Github.
