Typographic Matchmaking in the City : The Film - Khatt Foundation
Subscribe to our feed. The Typographic Matchmaking in the City project is a design research project investigating new approaches for bilingual lettering and poetic narrative for public space.

This project shows the important role that design can play in initiating cultural change, assimilation and integration - simply by using our basic mode of communication: the written word. Shot in several locations in Amsterdam, Dubai UAE , Sharjah UAE , Pingjum Friesland , and Doha Qatar , Typographic Matchmaking in the City: The Film follows the 5 teams of Dutch and Arab designers that participated in the project over a period of 18 months while they were travelling, working together, presenting their work in progress to culturally and professionally diverse audiences.
