‘Aravrit‘ is the graduation project of Liron Lavi Turkenich‘s visual communication studies. Aravrit is a project of utopian nature. It presents a set of hybrid letters merging Hebrew and Arabic. (‘Aravrit’: Aravit- Arabic & Ivrit- Hebrew)
Liron says: “This new writing system is composed of an Arabic letter on the upper half and a Hebrew letter on the bottom half. The characteristic features of each letter were retained, however in both languages the fusion required some compromises to be made, yet maintaining readability and with limited detriment to the original script. In Aravrit, one can read the language he/she chooses, without ignoring the other one, which is always present.”
638 letters were designed in this writing system in order to write each word and its translation in the other language. There is a glyph for every letter in Arabic combined with every letter in Hebrew.
