Examples of Arabic Type Design by Mamoun Sakkal

Arabtek Arabic typeface
This typeface was designed for compatibility with the English font Teknik
Arabtek is a very compact design compared with standard Arabic fonts
Similar shapes in the Latin and Arabic typefaces have slightly different proportions to maintain the natural feel in each script. Although horizontal and vertical lines appear to have equal thickness, in both scripts they are visually adjusted in opposite ways.
