Hi, ive been searching for the font they use on thier logo, specifically the english part where it looks kind of arabic, I need a font like that but cant seem to locate one at all.

Basically has anyone got any ideas for a font that looks like the english part of the following picture:

1) This is most certainly custom, not a font.
2) You can look here: http://new.myfonts.com/search/faux+arabic/
and here: http://www.dafont.com/theme.php?cat=202
3) You should move the thread (using the "Edit" link) to the Type ID Board.

Omg thank you so much, honestly!

Took me a while to navigate through the site but I did it eventually and the font is working fine, thanks again!!

One more question: Is there any legal implications of me using this font?

It depends if it's the official corporate font (then you shouldn't have even downloaded it) or a "fan font" based on the logo (then it depends on the license).
