Matching Hebrew font

Hi,

Can anyone help find a hebrew font that looks most like KarnakPro-Bold

http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/redrooster/karnak-pro/bold/

this is for a translation of the site: http://test.wegetmore.com to hebrew.

thanks,

Not the same, but also with a strong, assertive mood is Narkis Block.

A lot can go wrong when you try to "translate" a slab-serif font to Hebrew - be careful!

Yes, Hrant, Narkis Block is a sharp cornered 'sans'. I don't know whether there are really 'slab serif' Hebrews.

hrant,

Can you elaborate why you think why one needs to be careful translating a slab-serif font to Hebrew?

William,

I don't think that it would difficult to modify Narkis Block to be a slab-serif version, weight compatible with KarnakPro-Bold.

Well, in Hebrew any serifs are tricky* and serifs that are supposed to be as thick as the stems are likely to introduce too much functional "noise".

* See Gill's fiasco:

I have seen Gill used as an effective display face.

It is a fiasco because the forms were weird to look at.

In my view, the aleph is too heavy and over-weighted compared to the other letters. Many designers do this, because the form of the aleph's middle bar is dominant.

Was it to typeset an ad about English accent reduction classes? ;-)

hrant,

Ha, ha...

It was actually in three Israeli magaine/booklet covers from many years ago that I perused at "fine" examples of Hebrew design here in the USA. I think that I saw them online.

Huh? In which versions Gill Hebrew exists?
I thought it was only produced in lead.

Happy new year, Scott! :-)

try hadassah by henry friedlander.
also - a good one is "The Smoker Sans" by Hagilda - http://www.hagilda.com/
i think "Hagilda" has several solutions for this.
it's a hebrew site, but send them an email and they will help you.

I hope the information you provide in your articles that are useful to help others in dealing with the problems of bitterness, and that all feel relief after completing the problem.

and for that I also had an interesting info for my friends here from Cipto Junaedy with a good strategy to have knowledge about properties like this he expected us to be independent and the more authoritative because Mr Cipto Junaedy is a master of the property and many know the world Desain Rumah Minimalis and also My Otomotif
