Creating good Arabic fonts is a challenge – despite the various design courses and digital devices we now have at our disposal. That’s because typeface design has been, for the most part, aimed at Latin languages. Regular typography design just can’t accommodate the complexity and different contexts of the Arabic tongue.
One common problem is that the usual Arabic fonts available are either too small or can’t include modern changes to the language. However, more and more creatives are meeting demand. Thanks to different online platforms, the number of beautiful and legible Arabic fonts is increasing.
Don’t dismay if you haven’t found the right Arabic typeface to use in your project. Take a look at this collection and see if maybe the right font was just hiding here, all along.
