Greta Arabic is an unprecedented typeface family available in 39 styles, exploring new territories in Arabic type. It is a powerful toolbox capable of dealing with the most complex typographical situations in Arabic or Latin.
 
Styles
Greta Arabic comes in 10 weights which, combined with its four widths ( Compressed, Condensed, Normal, Extended ), create a tremendous range of possibilities. Even the intervals between the styles are an integral part of this unified typeface system.
 
Naskh influence
Greta Arabic explores new territories for the Naskh cursive letterform and subjects it to extreme conditions of widths and weights, without resorting to modularised forms. Greta keeps a hint of the pen especially in the dark styles and searches for a modern interpretations for these forms.
 
Continuous Optical sizes
Greta Arabic is designed as a continuous optical size system. While the basic text styles (Regular) are optimised for use at small sizes, the surrounding extremes (Hairline, Black) are designed to be used as headlines. The resulting spectrum then runs continuously from Display to Text to Display use.
 
Greta Arab was awarded the Type Directors Club Certificate of Excellence in 2016.
