The Aravrit typeface unites two forms of design: arabic and hebrew all in one. Liron Lavi Turkenich is one of the people responsible for 638 characters in this new kind of typeface.

According to DesignBoom, "the set of hybrid letters merge hebrew and arabic, with a dissected arabic letter on the upper half and a hebrew counterpart as the base." What's amazing is just how well these two languages go together, since this is not something that has been tried before. However, as Liron Lavi Turkenich demonstrates, it is usually the unlikely matching of certain items that can result in exquisite design.

While the typeface is still in the process of development, hopefully these new designs will become available as a part of the average font repertoire sooner rather than later.
