Hamra Str

Hamra Str is a fun display Arabic typeface meant for use in headlines and display settings. The Thin weight can also be used for short runs of text. Designed by Nadine Chahine, Hamra Str is named after the famed street in Beirut, Lebanon and its various weights are bound together by loose design commonalities, rather than the usual weight variations. The design is inspired by the eclectic nature of the real life Hamra Street and brings to Arabic type an informal and contemporary flavour.

You can get Hamra Str as part of the 2020: After the Fall collection.

في قلب العاصمة بيروت، شارع ينبض بالحياة، اجتماعي بامتياز، لا يعرف الليل من النهار، وتلتقي فيه المتناقضات. فهو منزل الأغنياء والفقراء، مقصد الكبار والصغار، محط رحال الأدباء والشعراء... إنه باختصار شارع الحمرا، أحد شوارع المدينة العريقة.
