Noam Benatar – Ktura
Ktura is a biscriptual, humanistic Slab-serif, Hebrew-Latin type family aimed for use as a text and title face. It includes nine cuts for both scripts, with four upright and corresponding italic text weights, and a display cut for titles. Ktura was designed following research on the way in which multi-script typefaces, specifically Hebrew-Latin ones, should be designed. The design process emphasises the idea that the understanding of the cultural background of each of the scripts is a crucial part in the design of multiscriptual typefaces. By experimenting with notions of contrast, proportion, white space and more, a comprehensive solution is introduced in the design which allows the typeface to work optimally in different environments where an intersection of the scripts occurs.
