Mohamed Gaber

Contributor / Masterclass Leader

Mohamed Gaber is a type designer and artist from Cairo, Egypt, now based in the Netherlands to work on his Masters at Sandberg Institute. He works in various creative disciplines, including type design, web design, graphic design, generative art performing. His primary interest lies in the haptic nature of type making and the technological, philosophical, and historical aspects of it.

While his work is driven by the values of free experimentation and perpetual learning, He draws his inspiration from a broad spectrum of sources, from the slightest variations of handwriting in government documents from the Cairo archives to variable fonts, from traditional calligraphy to quirky typefaces of signs and posters scattered across the city.

During his time at Sandberg Gaber co-founded TypeLab, an open platform to experiment with typography, and founded the TypePlatform, a research space for under-represented writing systems focusing on Arabic script.
