Georgia and matching Arabic system font
0

Hello, my friend designer works on a corporate identity for a large client. They decided to use Georgia as the alternative typeface family for office use. Could you please recommend me a compatible Arabic typeface available as a system font on a Windows platform? Thanks.

I doubt there is a system font compatible...

I search for typographic compatibility, an Arabic font you can combine with Latin text set in Georgia.

Is there a list of Arabic fonts available in Windows XP / Vista / Seven?

Midan, Sada (Seria), Nassim - they aren't close matches, but always...

personally I prefer Karim Lt, because it has a relatively High contrast compared to Georgia, though they have very different atmosphere, Georgia is modern, but Karim is generally based on traditional calligraphy. But they could work together.

What about Mitra? The typeface is less calligraphic than Karim, but still holds the traditional shape.
