    Israeli designer Avi Bohbot, who previously designed the visual identity for the Museum of Bat Yam, Israel (MoBY), was commissioned to create this special series of posters for the exhibition Plenty — שפע (Shafa) is the Hebrew title — on show at the Museum of Bat Yam. He expertly applied Adi Stern’s Noam Text fonts, as he did before in the printed specimen. The fonts play a clear and distinct role as communicator conveying information about the exhibit and related events.

    The exhibition deals with limitations and power, and the creative impulse they can stimulate. The participating artists and their works interact with everyday materials that surround us. They reflect on the struggle between the desire to connect with and react to our reality, and the urge to break out of it.

    Art exhibition and series of events, 21 June – 21 November 2018
    Curator: Hila Cohen-Schneiderman

      Most of the posters show the exhibition title also in Russian (изобилие) and Arabic (وفرة). Do you know which fonts were used for those words?

      The Arabic looks a bit like Athelas Arabic, but it’s my personal guess.
