ABOUT







Offir Markus

Graphic designer/typographer based in Tel-Aviv, Israel, who graduated from the Visual Communication Department (B.Des) at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, in which he specialized in print, identity, logo, type and book design.

He writes about his Ziona typeface (2012): Ziona is a new Hebrew serif typeface, inspired by calligraphic manuscripts written by Iberian Jews (Jews who lived in the Iberian Peninsula) during the Middle Ages. The typeface has a modern look, but preserves the unique attributes of the Hebrew calligraphy - specifically those that originated from the "Formal Style" of hand writings. The Formal Style of hand writing was used for 2000 years to write Bibles and other sacred Jewish books. The Ziona typeface is my graduation piece at Shenkar College of Enineering and Design.
