This thesis is a research-driven project about Hebrew typography and multi-script typesetting. The project explores the history and development of the writing system and its current use in design. Lastly, the thesis explores the question how one can create harmony between two fundamentally different writing systems. In an increasingly globalised world designing bilingual and possibly with multiple writing systems is becoming more and more important and it is a challenge we have to face as designers.
