TypoGrid, Create your square kufi, pixel arts, grid typography
0

typogrid is a smart tool for typographers and graphic designers helps them to create typography letters and pixel arts based on the grids system.

In 2011, I developed the first version of this web application under "Square Kufi / Kufi Murabba" name. The concept of the app was to help users create one kind of arabic calligraphy which is Square Kufi using pen and eraser tools.

At the end of 2014, and after feedback and further development of my vision, I developed a lot of concepts to created an advanced and smart tool for typographers and graphic designers which would help them to create typography letters and pixel arts based on the grids system, in a much more faster way. Thus, this web application has now emerged as something more than a tool to create Kufi arabic calligraphy - it has become a TypoGrid.

Technical Features:
- User-friendly interface
- Export as SVG and PNG
- Import SVG files
- Compatible on iPad, Tablets and smart phones

Congratulations! مبروك
This sounds interesting. I wanted to check it out, perhaps compare it to inkpad app for the ipad which is fantastic for vector drawing (except when you type Arabic in it the marks positions adjustments are misplaced - high instead of low and vice versa). Judqing from the movie your app can 'store' shapes - great. The App Store in Japan does not have it either for desktop or ipad...
Good luck!

Cool!
Is it possible to make the grid slightly asymmetrical, to offset the fact that vertical strokes look thinner than horizontal ones (when they're mathematically equal)?
