Aladdin Bold was created by Typographic Designer/Letter,Illustrator Tom Nikosey (USA). I created a logo for a desert resort hotel that's style was based on the warm winds and ambiance of the ancient Sahara Desert.
"As I was drawing the individual letterforms to build the words, I realized a typeface was taking shape.I decided some years later to complete the font and decided to name it Aladdin after the wonderful classic set in that part of the world." -TN
The round pointed serifs & bold flowing curves felt very Middle Eastern Classic. Even though most of the countries in that region of the world use their own characters and glyphs I wanted to create a westernized translation in letterforms to match the personality of the culture.
The font is clean, legible and bold. It also appears to have a Germanic, Baltic, and Eastern European flair.
