So begins a very rough concept for watercolorist @Heidi Ahmed. She wanted an option with exotic, specifically Arabic, insinuation. This was extremely interesting and enjoyable to hash out, though it killed two cartridges worth of Pilot Parallel.
Thoughts and suggestions are always welcome.
@Neil Tasker Any thoughts on this? Is legibility good?

Really distinctive style here, it caught my eye right away. The hint of Arabic lettering comes across beautifully, accentuated nicely by the diamond dots. My only issue in terms of legibility is the first 'e'. I love the idea of having it reversed and the interaction with the 'R' is great, but I'm reading it as 'Ro'. I wonder if you could have the 'R' leg flow into it more conventionally, so that it turns into the 'e' crossbar instead. That would let you have a more readable 'e' but still keep the interesting connection between the letter pair.
@Claire where have you been with all this good advice? Have you had tons of work the past couple months? If so, that's a fantastic problem to have.
I've been grappling between keeping consistent with Arabic and being everything legible. That is a perfect solution- of course it has escaped me the past few days. Thanks so much for your help!
The last month or two have been a combination of work + taking time off, so pretty good really! Need to get back to posting though.
Yeah I can imagine that's not an easy balance, but it's definitely not far off. Glad to be of some help!

A second round of options with a few stylistic changes and some tightening of letters. The 'r' and 'i' relationship are particularly of interest to me- is it legible while stylistic? Any thoughts are appreciated and considered!
Thanks to @Claire Coullon for the great thoughts on the 'Re' ligature.
