Lifta

Lifta is a bold protest typeface available in black and stencil versions. Named after the Palestinian village Lifta that was destroyed in the 1948 occupation, it is a typeface that protests the erasure of Palestinian identity and the subjugation of their rights as they live under occupation. It is designed by Omaima Dajani who is from East Jerusalem and living under occupation today. The design above is dedicated to Palestinian refugees around the world.

Lifta supports the Arabic language and has proportional and tabular numerals.

You can get Lifta as part of the 2020: After the Fall collection. The Black weight will be made available for free download in the coming weeks.
