“Shemesh” (in Hebrew: “sun”) is a cursive Hebrew typeface designed with multiple OpenType features such as contextual alternates and ligatures. The typeface was programmed to compose accurate combinations of Hebrew cursive letters by default.
As the combination of certain Hebrew letters proved esthetically problematic, I created up to five variations to certain letters in order to solve problems of spacing and visual flow. It took several months of work to achieve the desired consistency and harmony between the Hebrew characters and the font's three stylistic weights.
Contextual alternates in Shemesh not only redress the visual problems that arise when using Hebrew script fonts but also create new options for you with its various letter combinations. These OpenType features and three stylistic weights (regular, brush and rust), allow you as a designer using Shemesh to create logos and titles that seem like a costume-made calligraphy.
