About Adapter Hebrew:

The design of Adapter started with a goal shared by many other designers: to create a simple, no-frills sans serif that would appeal to contemporary modernist and post-modernist aesthetics. A straightforward, universal typeface that is easy to use for a wide range of design genres.

We found that modernist sans serifs (or neo-grotesques such as Helvetica or Arial) tend to be used according to two different logics. They are an unobtrusive, basic, or even default choice when used for continuous texts. Yet they can also be selected intentionally to make a strong stylistic statement suggesting minimalism or unaesthetics when used in posters, magazines, or book covers. These are two very different objectives, and we argue they are best addressed with different shapes. That’s why we designed two different typefaces with two different design personalities.

Adapter World™ design programme

Adapter™ World is a design programme involving an international team of designers and consultants who work with Rosetta type foundry to provide a modern, coherent, and reliable design for a wide range of the world’s languages.

Providing typefaces that are visually harmonized across diverse language contexts is no small feat as different languages and cultural environments pose many design challenges. For example, the aesthetics of the Latin script may not easily be translated to Arabic or Hebrew environments. This is a challenge that lies far beyond the abilities of an individual designer. Thus, Rosetta always works collaboratively, employing specialized consultants. The goal is to deliver fonts that are both visually pleasing and culturally valid. The quality of Adapter Cyrillic has already been recognized in the respected Modern Cyrillic 2019 competition.
