Font Designer – Margaret Tan

Margaret Tan created the font Jalal® in 1977.

Jalal is a modern Arabic text typeface with two weights: Jalal Light and Jalal Bold. Both of the fonts ship in the OpenType format, and include Latin glyphs (from Optima® Demi Bold and Optima Bold) inside the font files, allowing a single font to set text in both most Western European and Arabic languages.

The Jalal 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.
The Know How section offers detailed background knowledge to deal with all enquiries about the use of fonts.
