We just got back from a great trip to Israel, so the next several posts will be some images from the trip.
We had the occasion to go thanks to a call Kimya received from the Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem. She was invited to be one of 6 Indians for to conduct a week-long workshop for the school’s “India Design Week”. Naturally, her theme was typography – her students first learned the basics of the Devanagari script then made a typographic object with bilingual Hebrew and Devanagari lettering.
I didn’t have much to do with the workshop, so I spent my time working on a new Hebrew typeface and wandering around clicking photos all over the city. Here are just a few shop signs from Jerusalem to get started.
