Cultural Connectives bridges the Arabic and Latin alphabets through a family of typefaces designed by author Rana Abou Rjeily that bring the two alphabets into typographic harmony, even in light of their differences. Using her designs, Abou Rjeily applies Arabic rules of writing, grammar and pronunciation to English as a way to introduce Arabic to non-native speakers.
