SF Arabic is built from a precisely engineered modular core with four subject specific curves and orthogonal strokes, a complex, yet logical, font structure. In fact, SF Arabic is the first true modular font family in Unicode.
While the SF Arabic font was designed with the Arabic script in mind, it works equally well for other languages such as Latin, Cyrillic, Hebrew and Turkish. It's an ideal font for screen and web reading and can be used throughout a wide range of publishing and desktop publishing applications.
So, now that you know a bit more about system fonts, what do you think? Do you prefer system fonts? Or do you prefer web fonts? Either way, you can find a wide variety of free fonts from both systems. Enjoy!
The good news is that the font that comes with the operating system often isn't very readable. I've heard of a lot of users complaining about the system font on iOS devices. Apparently they think it looks like a computer font with different characters. As I mentioned above, this can be because the font used in the UI is a more legible font.
If you're one of those people who only use the system font, you can try out other fonts or look into other ways of adding fonts to your OS. While many operating systems don't have font support built in like Windows does, there are some great tools out there that allow you to change fonts. One of my favorites is Font Manager . It's a really great app to use in this situation.
Sans serif fonts are the “normal” font that people use. They are generally intended to be used for web pages, articles, and content that needs to be clean and clutter-free. They tend to be a little bit harder to read than system fonts.
By the time you have created a few fonts for your next project, it's likely that you will have an idea of what a few different fonts will do for your design. As you go through some design projects, you will have a good idea of when you might choose a font. If you have to pick a font from a list, you can use a tool like Apple's FontBook to help you. 827ec27edc
