matching latin type to hebrew letters

Yaronimus-Maximus's picture


hey ppl.
i'm designing some graduate certificates, merits and excellence certificates for an arts college here in israel.
they asked me to design matching certificates in english,
so i'm looking for a good, clean, very light sans serif latin font match for the letters attached i have designed.
something which is respectable and sharp, not too machine-like. something which reminds the general style of helvetica, but is not helvetica.

thanks!
Yaronimus.

Shalom Ahi! Cool Hebrew letters!

Are you familiar with Section? Its a clean, sharp sans that isn't too mechanical. It might suit your needs. Geogrotesque might be an option as well.

ahalan ahi!!
thank you very much for the help.
is there any type from linotype's sans serif page that might suit and resemble the "section" type you offered?

i think that light caps would be a wonderful solution for matching hebrew/english.

what do you people think about caps fonts? can it damage the dignity of a certificate?

thanks!

i really love geogrotesque minimalism, the feel of a clear and repetitive shape which suits really good to my designed letters.

You can try Eurostile from linotype. Also take a look at Conduit and Breuer Text.

Also Din Display Pro might work for you.

I would not use all caps.

I wouldn't use all caps for the whole document, it could become overwhelming to read. I also don't know how much type is on these certificates, if not so much, then you could use all caps, you just might need to have contrast in sizes.

I like DIN a lot, its clean, precise, ledgible, not too mechanical, not too humanist, good for corporate identity or as a text font.

Jeo.
