Hello Digital Wallpapers! Volume 2: R for Rakim.

Good day everyone! Here we are again sharing goodies with you. And yes, it’s all free.


This time we are featuring digital wallpapers design: R for Rakim Gizlipa Series. It is a tribute to Ottoman Master Calligrapher Mustafa Rakim (1758-1826) from us. Inspired by the craftsmanship of Mustafa Râkım, original letterings are taken after his original mufradat (basic letterings) manual. So in these wallpapers, we feature the Arabic Thuluth letter: Raw’ which is equivalent of letter R in Roman/Latin.

The letter Raw’ or R, which is the initial letter for Rakim has 3 different appearances. It is digitally vector-traced and composed into series of graphic wallpapers. These letters are arranged in a specific manner to induce the calligraphic qualities of the original letterings, repeated in specific orientations and harmonised with colour combinations that reflects quiet, clean-space appeal when it’s being used as digital wallpaper across all devices. Certain graphic features are in form of a logomark or emblems which all made up of just the same letterings. Through this, we focussed on cleaner visual backdrops for a comfortable digital work space on the eyes when used on devices like phones, tablets and computer screens. So have a try, download them and feel it on your device screens!

There’s a total of 24 pieces of wallpaper designs, which accommodates UHD 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. These works are basically the author’s practise on graphic arts as well as an attempt to gain a deeper understanding of the elements of classical Arabic/Islamic calligraphy through digital intervention. We hope through these, calligraphy enthusiasts may be exposed to essences of classical calligraphy by past masters with deeper appreciation.
