Font Designer – Osman Husseini
Osman Husseini created the font Badr® ca. 1970. Badr is a traditional-style Arabic text typeface with two weights: Badr Light and BadrBold. Both of the fonts ship in the OpenType format, and include Latin glyphs (from Cochin® Roman and Cochin Bold) inside the font files, allowing a single font to set text in both most Western European and Arabic languages. The two Badr fonts incorporate the Basic Latin character set (Western CP 1252 Latin 1/ANSI and Macintosh US Roman) and the Arabic character set (CP 1256), which supports Arabic, Persian, and Urdu. They include tabular and proportional Arabic, Persian, and Urdu numerals, as well as a set of tabular European (Latin) numerals.
