November Hebrew Compressed

Design Concept

Sometimes there are situations when a friendly typeface is too imposing. Sometimes you just want to use a typeface to get the job done. November is a rational, utilitarian typeface inspired by street signage. Unlike most signage types it also handles long texts with ease.

While most tool-based typefaces feature angled terminals, November’s end strokes are always straight, anticipating the following letter, creating distinctive counterspaces that support the visual rhythm of the words.

Typographic Matchmaking

Unlike the Latin writing script, the Hebrew doesn’t have case, which makes it challenging to combine various scripts on same line of text. When setting the text in lower case, Hebrew may appear taller. When setting Latin in capitals, Hebrew looks too small. That’s why November Hebrew includes Small Caps, which are ideal for combining Latin and Hebrew next to each other.

Numerals

The Latin version of November includes various numerals sets — lining numerals for use with capitals, ranging numerals for combining with lower case. Hebrew set includes a special hybrid set of numerals, higher than small caps, but lower than the Latin lining numerals.
