Dhives – A free Dhives Akuru font

Earlier this year, Nattu and I took a break from work to work on something fun and different. The result: A Dhives Akuru font. We published this a while back at the Semicolon blog, I'm posting it here just for reference.



I admit the font is very unpolished. I should have spent more time cleaning it up but I had to spend a whole lot of time reading up, learning how Dhives Akuru works, finding sample characters etc. I read pretty much everything I could find on Dhives Akuru on the web and learnt a whole lot about Dhives Akuru along the way. And it is a complex beast.

Dhives Akuru is the script used in the Maldives until it was replaced officially by Thaana as the official script for Dhivehi.
