Customised Hebrew Fontsby Oded Ezer

A recognisable, unique and direct connection
with Hebrew readers around the world

The Hebrew script (square script) was originally developed during the late second and first millennia BCE. It is written from right to left, and has no lower case. It consists of 27 letters including five letters with two forms – one for use within the word and one for use at the end of the word.

The challenge in designing a Hebrew font matching to the Latin font, both in nature and form, requires expertise, experience and an understanding of Hebrew typography. The issue is the skeleton of the Hebrew letter, which is based on a square, as opposed to the circular Latin languages. The link between language, font, structure and transmitted values, is the aim of the design process.

Oded Ezer is a specialist of Hebrew typeface design, known for his Hebrew fonts and experimental typographic works. A graduate of Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem, he lives and works in Tel Aviv.
Several Hebrew typefaces of Ezer’s have won national and international accolades, including a Certificate of Excellence at the TDC52 competition of the New York Type Directors Club, Certificate of Excellence at the 4th annual competition of the New York Type Directors Club, Certificate of Excellence at the “Bukva raz” type design competition, Moscow, Russia, and the Israeli Education Ministry Prize for Design.
Ezer’s typographic works are showcased and published worldwide, and are part of permanent collections at eminent museums such as the New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMA, NYC), Israel Museum of Art (Jerusalem), Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A, London), Museum für Gestaltung (Zürich) and Design Museum Holon (Tel-Aviv).
