Arabic Fonts Guide

Arabic Fonts Guide

As a designer in the middle east, you may face challenges in finding suitable Arabic fonts for your design needs. Here is a list of essential fonts that you need in your repertoire.

Sadly, many websites upload fonts illegally without getting the required permission. This is called “Copyright Infringement” and it leads to the loss of the designer’s rights and efforts. It is crucial to identify the proper font license prior to using it in your artwork to avoid any legal implications and to protect the rights of other designers.

In 2010, Google launched an open source catalog available for everyone Google had many collaborations with different designers, and it encourages creatives to participate in this initiative

From my work experience, licenses prices vary depending on the usage. For example, a web licence is much more expensive than a desktop version. This variation makes this initiative vital for rising designers and developers who do not want to compromise the quality of their work
