After 10 years of sheer dedication, father-son duo Nasrullah Mehr and Zeeshan Mehr have launched a calligraphic-based Urdu font for the web. Mr Nasrullah Mehr is an award winning Pakistani calligraphic artist whose work has been published on several different platforms including newspapers, magazines, books, and more.
Their newest work-of-art came into being with the support of Dr. Umar Saif, Vice Chancellor of Information Technology University (ITU) and the technical assistance of linguistic technology expert, Dr. Agha Ali Raza, from ITU’s Center for Speech and Language Technologies (CSaLT) laboratory.
