afikra Arabic logotype

afikra approached us to work on their Arabic logotype. The original logo was designed using Latin letters. That was the starting point for our approach to finding a suitable solution in Arabic.

afikra (pronounced ‘3afikra’) is a monthly salon-style evening in someone’s home where two members of the community present about cultural and historical topics they are curious about related to the Arab world. The purpose of each evening is to bring together a community of like-minded individuals and explore new topics and questions related to Arab history and culture. Check out previous talks at

afikra has chapters in NYC, Montreal, DC, Dubai, Beirut & London! We will be opening chapters in Bahrain, Boston, LA, Amman, & Kuwait soon!
