زمین بازی

زمین بازی, or 'Playground' in English, was developed as a response to the Taliban's resurgence in Afghanistan and the draconian rules that have been reimposed on the country's people. In particular, Playground is based on the refusal to allow young women and girls to re-enter education; a fundamental human right.

To create a functional Dari-Persian typeface, we started by looking at the dynamic forms and movement of children at play. This freedom provided the basis for the isolated letters of each character in the Dari alphabet. Without an immediate end to their ban on education,  women in Afghanistan will be disadvantaged for decades to come. Playground seeks to provide a strong and distinctive aesthetic that has its roots in the purity and joy of schooling for all.
