    In order to design a typeface based on calligraphy, one should be aware of the exclusive
    esthetical features of existing calligraphic styles. The quality of the line differs from one style to another; The curves, cuts and thickness of the lines can be observed as the main qualities.
    Therefore by applying these features to a line, it can reach to the different styles of calligraphy.
    The design process of this project demonstrates different approaches to design of the
    letters with calligraphic characteristics.
