Help Jordanian filmmakers to write, produce and direct feature films

Filmmaking is a new industry in Jordan, and there aren’t enough educational institutions teaching this discipline. The RFC has been playing a major role in searching for and training talents that would be capable of narrating/expressing Jordanian stories, in addition to granting these talented filmmakers hands on experience that would enable them to work on any international film production. Subsequently, the RFC has designed a new program – the Educational Feature Film (EFF) program – that gives emerging Jordanian filmmakers a chance to tell their stories, under the supervision of mentors. The program was started in 2010 and helped produce five films, but was unfortunately suspended in 2013 due to shortage of funding.

You can support this great program by donating on Indiegogo or spreading the word around.

Swissra: An Arabic Typeface Inspired by Swiss Graphic Design

Ladies and gentlemen, please meet Swissra, an Arabic typeface that was inspired by Swiss graphic design.

Ali AlMasri, the designer behind the typeface, says that the motivation behind the typeface was to create a neutral and carefully crafted Arabic font family that can be used on many different applications and work in multilingual situations with Swiss fonts such as Akzidenz-grotesk and Helvetica. Swissra is also a tribute to Swiss graphic design.

Technical stuff: Swissra features sharply cut terminals, which are either horizontal or vertical. It also features closed apertures and a high x-height.

Swissra is available in eight weights that range from ultralight to black.

You can buy Swissra from MyFonts.
