The Art of Arabic Calligraphic Designs

Just like the name enlightens, “calli” refers to beauty and “graphy” means writing. With a broad tip of pen, calligraphers bring words back to life scripting them in an extraordinary way. It’s the art of writing words in a gorgeous, expressive and classy technique.

From various types of Calligraphic designs, some of the elegant and sophisticated ones are:

  • Thuluth Style: Islamic calligraphy introduced by Persians in 11th century
  • Diwani Style: It has its roots from Ottoman Turks, a form of Arabic script.
  • Nastaliq Style: One of the main used design in Perso-Arabic script. Developed in Iran in 8th and 9th century.
