Speaking through the shapes of typography

Oded Ezer's work from his website

I don’t usually highlight individual portfolios that much, but I thought Oded Ezer’s work was an exception. I only discovered his work this morning after he made me a contact through flickr. After going through his typography work, experiments and art I couldn’t not mention his name here on DesignNotes. His combination of english and hebrew characters are fascinating. Aside from the characters used in english or french I don’t know any other language, yet the shapes of his hebrew characters seem familiar. His characters are kerned and spaced eligantly and the shapes speak, even if you have no idea what they’re saying. You can visit his work at his portfolio site and look at his photos on flickr.

There’s also a pretty good interview with Oded at PingMag titled Oded Ezer – experimental Hebrew typography

    The rational for them is kind of interesting too.
