About Hebrewish Font Family

I decided to create Hebrewish because the only Hebrew Latino font I have ever seen didn't really live-up to my expectations. Each Roman letter and Arabic numeral in this font is based directly on one or more of the Hebrew characters. Originally I was tempted to create an upper case only - since there is no lower case in Hebrew that I know of. But, as this would have limited it's usefulness, I changed my mind and added a lower case also. Nevertheless, those who want to create very Hebrew looking text, need only use the upper case. I've also added some typical Judaic symbols for the artistic minded, e.g. David's star *, the Menorah ^(Jewish candelabrum) and brackets{ } based on this, as well as brackets [] which, used together, produce a 'Ten commandments' stone-tablet symbol(use this [~] for another version). In short, you can either have some fun with this font or use it for serious work - the choice is yours.

About JAB

As this is the first time I have tried my hand at font creation, there isn't much to say about my experience in this area. Looking back though, I think I have had a secret desire to do this for quite some time. Actually I am more into digital art than fonts and have used PhotoShop for many years to create symbolic paintings. I suppose it was my love of symbols that eventually lead me to design Nefertiti. I am not sure yet if I will create any others. It really depends on the response I get to this one. Although I have successfully completed several graphic design courses over the years, I am basically a self-taught artist. Apart from PhotoShop, I also use Corel Print House. It was with the latter program that I designed the Hieroglyphs for Nefertiti. And now I have had some experience with Font Creator 5, which is a really great program, especially for beginners because it's so easy to use.
