Hands up who’s never seen graphic design in Hebrew before? Me! I am amazed at this collection of typographic posters created by third year students on the Visual Communication course at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design in Israel. Not just because it’s all in Hebrew, which of course makes it look even cooler because I have no idea what it means, but just the diversity in the work that’s been produced.
The students were set the brief to design posters using only typography and colour with no images or illustrations, which led to the exhibition, A0 / A2 / A4 to showcase the works. The variety of individual styles, colours, tones and approaches is impressive and looking through their website it feels like working your way through a beautiful typographic goldmine. So come on, get your Letraset tools out and start digging!
