29LT ZARID Text: A legible and Lucid Typeface
29LT Zarid Text is the lucid neo-calligraphic version of Zarid Serif. In contrast to the latter that is a formal, confident and robust typeface, Zarid Text is an orderly, fluent and legible type with softened serifs that complement the natural flow of reading.
Upright and slanted Arabic neo-calligraphic Naskh character set resonate in look and feel with its slanted humanistic calligraphic Latin counterpart.
29LT Zarid Text type family consists of 8 styles — 4 Standard styles and 4 Slanted styles — and comes in Light, Regular, Medium, and Bold weights.
WHY IT IS A TOP PICK
29LT Zarid Text displays advanced but softer features. Improved legibility in small point size and habitual appearance are its key characteristics. More calligraphy-influenced with a greater variation in line width, it does offer improved legibility and clearer interlinear space. The range of weights also provides suitable typographic hierarchical solutions in bi-script Arabic and Latin layouts. This reader-friendly typeface is quite useful for diverse long running texts, such as magazines and books, and it works well with both digital and print applications. Its fashionable feel makes it aesthetically functional in display typographic setting too.
