FAQ - Design

  • What does the Dubai Font add to current typography?

    This is the first typeface that is freely available for both private and commercial use with matching Latin and Arabic scripts that are optimized for screen appearance. The number of Arabic fonts that are available today is relatively small, and usually with a cost attached. These fonts will help to cover that gap.

  • How is it new?

    This is the first font to ship with Office where both Latin and Arabic were designed at the same time.

  • What style is it?

    The source of inspiration is firmly rooted in local heritage (a mix of Muhaqqaq and Naskh for the Arabic, and Dutch design for the Latin) while embracing the modern and the innovative. The design follows traditional aesthetics but the treatment is very contemporary and clean.

  • What are the similarities and differences from other typefaces?

    The design in Latin and Arabic is meant for setting text and in that respect, the typeface fits with established traditions of text face design. The Arabic brings a mix of Naskh and Muhaqqaq into its structure and form and this gives a distinguished look to it.

  • How does the design of the Dubai Font affect the speed of reading?

    The simplicity of form that the design brings is based on the knowledge gleaned from extensive legibility and reading research. The openness of the design and the simple unobtrusive shapes provide a comfortable reading experience.

  • What value does the Dubai Font bring to its users?

    The Dubai Font supports the reading of Arabic and Latin scripts on screen by offering top class typefaces that support legibility and reading. It also bridges the design gap between Arabic and Latin texts by providing harmonious typefaces that combine the two scripts seamlessly. In addition, it makes high quality typography available to everyone, especially for app developers and web designers and thereby supports the tech industry by making quality fonts available with no licensing costs attached.

FAQ - Technical

  • How do I access the Latin or Arabic letters in the font?

    Both the Arabic and Latin letters are included in the same font files. To access the language that you want to type in, simply switch your keyboard to the design language and start typing. In case you only have Latin or Arabic keyboards installed on your computer, check your language/keyboard preferences to add the extra keyboard.

  • What languages are supported in the Dubai Font?

    The fonts support 23 languages: Afrikaans, Arabic, Basque, Breton, Catalan, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, Gaelic, German, Icelandic, Indonesian, Italian, Norwegian, Persian, Portuguese, Saami, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, and Urdu.

  • How many weights are available?
