Curve plays a significant role in Computer Aided Geometric Design (CAGD) because it is easy to model any figure. Bezier curve and Timmer curve are methods that can be used to design any objects or images. In this research, two methods are proposed which are Rational Cubic Bezier and Rational Cubic Timmer to design the Arabic calligraphy. Rational Cubic Bezier and Rational Cubic Timmer are easier to be used in designing since they have an additional parameter which is weight that is used to

However, the properties of the curve do not produce the best design compare to Bezier Curve. The comparison between the two methods shows that Rational Cubic Bezier is the best method to be used and able to produce the best design for Arabic Calligraphy.
