Fit Hebrew

Oded Ezer

Oded Ezer designed Fit Hebrew, an expansion for David Jonathan Ross's award winning Fit typeface. Fit Hebrew, like it’s Latin predecessor, is a variable font with hyper-stylised letterforms designed to fill up space with the greatest possible impact. Fit has an expansive range of widths. Beginning with the extremely narrow Skyline style, letters grow by 3600% on average to reach the gargantuan Ultra Extended.
