Eskorte is a hardworking Latin-Arabic type family with an uncomplicated, regular appearance that conveys a crisp, businesslike tone. Its compact range of styles has been designed for easy use by non-designers in offices of legal and academic institutions, and corporate environments. Eskorte supports Arabic, Farsi, Urdu, and over ninety languages using the Latin script.

The various styles were designed together, resulting in a smooth, coherent style across the family. The italics take on livelier, more fluid forms that echo the design of the Arabic, allowing them to sit perfectly together, while the extrabold adds punch to official announcements and notices.

Eskorte was developed as part of the master programm in typeface design at the University of Reading (UK). The Arabic was designed in consultation with Titus Nemeth.

The typeface family is distributed by Rosetta Type Foundry. More information about it and a PDF specimen to download you can find here.

I would like to thank David Březina, Titus Nemeth, Khajag Apelian and Georg Seifert for their help and expertise.
