InPerson Interview: Nadine Chahine

David Blatner interviews an expert in Middle Eastern type design to learn about Arabic fonts, legibility, and antisocial glyphs

Nadine: My current job is the UK Type Director and Legibility Expert. I have been in this job for a year now, but I have been with the company for almost 12.
