New Project: Typographic Videos for the 2015 Liturgical Music Festival

The Liturgical Music Festival in Jerusalem is an annual, colourful event that focuses on the liturgical traditions of the Jewish people from all parts of the world.

 

 

For this year’s festival, typographer and graphic artist Oded Ezer has created typographic video clips, inspired by natural and organic forms. The clips were projected on screens, ceilings and buildings, throughout the entire Festival.

All videos depicted the Hebrew Beit-Hillel font, designed by Ezer himself. The design of this half-serif font was based on a 20th century Hebrew classic – HaẒvi – and strived to “unveil” the traditional letter “hidden inside” HaẒvi’s modern façade, and thus completing retroactively the work of legendary Hebrew type designer Ẓvi Hausmann from 1954.
