According to Fast Company, this year’s honorees “dare to think differently. They're the ones taking risks and discovering surprising new solutions to old problems.” Other honorees included actress Jessica Alba, director Wes Anderson, entertainer Cee Lo Green, NBA analyst Shaquille O’Neal, in addition to individuals from companies such as Facebook, Starbucks, JC Penney, American Express, Nike, Twitter, Google and Microsoft.

“I’m deeply honored and humbled to be in the company of so many accomplished people,” said Chahine, who is from Lebanon and is #69 on Fast Company’s list. “My focus has always been on the complex and evolving societies of the Arab world. There’s a lack of high-quality Arabic typefaces, so the challenge is to create beautiful Arabic type that’s culturally relevant and invites people to want to read, write and take action. We also need Arabic typefaces to work well alongside texts in other languages, on screen and in print. Typography is integrally connected in the environment in which it sits. As a designer, I see more than just letters and numbers – I see type as the means to engage in the larger context of culture and society.”
