Arabic Characters

Arabic typefaces is something I want to research as the brief asks to look at non-latin letterforms. This lettering is very ‘alien’ looking to me as I have no sense at all what they could possibly be saying. Basing my lettering on some of the techniques used in this lettering, such as the dots above and below letters, the straight lines and sharp curves and looking at the joining of characters.

The brief states for 5 characters to be design, however this could also be a phrase if I decide thats how its translates as Chinese letterforms often represent a whole word.
