Hana Gohar, design student at the German University in Cairo – Egypt, used our font Plau as a starting point for the signage of a long neglected method of transportation in Egypt – the Nile Bus.

We were amazed with the way she transformed the font’s features into a signage project and went beyond, expanding the font into Arabic – all in one final thesis. No wonder she got an A.

Besides being socially relevant, the project turned out beautiful.
