Monotype Imaging continues to add to its non-Latin typeface offerings, providing designers with a wide range of fonts covering global languages. We are pleased to introduce Hiba Studio – a source of fine Arabic fonts.
Hiba Studio was launched in 2007 by Hasan Abu Afash, an Arabic type designer and typographer based in Gaza, Palestine. His type design work includes fonts covering all languages that use Arabic scripts such as Arabic, Persian, Urdu, Kurdish and Pashto. Hasan has worked with a variety of Arabic type designers including Mirjam Somers, Pascal Zoghbi and Dr. Mamoun Sakkkal.
The Arabic fonts from Hiba Studio are all in OpenType and/or TrueType format for use in modern operating systems and software applications that support complex scripts such as Arabic. This includes Microsoft Office for Windows, OpenOffice and Mellel. Adobe InDesign and Illustrator users must have the Middle Eastern version, or a plug-in such as IndicPlus.
