Download Begum font
Begum font family is a new and very interesting typeface that originates from India. This super modern serif typeface is designed by the young Indian designer Manushi Parikh. Even before her graduation from the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad, she has been associated with Indian Type Foundry from the same city. She is now working permanently for them and obviously this is a relation that is already thriving. Manushi fits very well in the foundry’s pattern that is well established since 2009 – creating high quality digital typefaces for both Indian and global markets. We can only hope that Indian Type Foundry will continue to offer such fresh and original projects.
Begum font is itself a very fine mixture of influences. Its origins can be traced to both some classic Anglo-Dutch scripts as well as traditional Indic letterforms which makes it a fine link between the past and the present, between the lavish beauty of the East and the practical nature of the West. It is intended to be a super family that supports Latin, Tamil and Devanagari writing systems. It is very distinctive with its high contrast and very clear contemporary appearance and is a perfect choice if a multilingual text is to be used that requires the usage of the aforementioned systems. Apparently, Begum will best work as a display typeface in headlines but the application possibilities of this script are far from limited with that as it can be used with great success in short texts like ads, introductions, brochures, written commercials, menus, etc.
The very elegant and friendly Begum comes in 5 weights – Light, Regular, Medium, Semibold and Bold with the Latin version having 384 glyphs.
