Nassim - Tom Grace, typeface design and font development
Nassim BBC basic charset

Nassim BBC is Titus Nemeth’s award-winning typeface Nassim adapted for the BBC Arabic website. The demands of legibility and readability at small sizes required slight adjustments to the design, as well as optimizing how web browsers and operating systems render it with just a few pixels.

Following the BBC Arabic website relaunch in 2011, Nassim was chosen for use on the BBC Persian website. This too, required adaptations to the design – not only for legibility’s sake, but also to give the design a distinctly Persian æsthetic.
