Hackathon: Type Jam Tel Aviv

August 2nd, 2019
10:00 AM – 11:59 PM

We will gather at 10:00 in Beit HaBe'er in Jaffa, a historic landmark that was just refurbished and re-opened recently.

We will hear some lectures about Glyphs, Hebrew type design and the history of the Hebrew written language.
After that, we will embark on a day-long type design experiment with groups, singles, designers and non-designers will design a full Hebrew character set (at least) with a brief to guide them that will be revealed just before the event.
