Oded Ezer

“My name is Oded Ezer and I am a typoholic”, is how typographer, type designer, artist and teacher Oded Ezer introduces himself.

Graphic designer, type designer, design educator, a pioneer in the field of 3D Hebrew lettering and a typographic experimentalist who invented the term Biotypography… Oded Ezer’s projects, posters and graphic works are showcased and published worldwide, and are part of permanent collections of eminent museums such as the New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Israel Museum of Art in Jerusalem, and the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich. He has been a member of the prestigious Alliance Graphique Internationale (AGI) since 2009.

Ezer studied at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem from 1994 to 1998. In 2000, he went on to set up his own independent studio, Oded Ezer Typography, in Givatayim, where he specializes in brand identity, typographic design and Hebrew and Latin typeface design. In 2002, he initiated the foundation of Ha’Gilda, the first cooperative of Israeli font designers, and has been an active member until 2006. From 2010, Ezer has been a senior lecturer in the Visual Communication Department of the Holon Institute of Technology (HIT), and also gives lectures about typographic design in academies and conferences outside Israel.
