It’s not everyday that you see graphic design in Hebrew. I’ve always been fascinated by non-latin characters, so I was happy to see these typographic posters made by design students from the Shenkar College of Engineering and Design in Israel.
The students were briefed to create posters without using images, so typography, form and color was all they had (some would argue that it’s a lot already). The quality of the work is excellent, you can check out more on this website.

A common problem with script fonts is the lack of alternate glyphs for each letter. Giovale tackles this problem quite well, by offering over 1000 glyphs to ensure that your script font will really look like handwritten text, with swooshes that are rarely repeated.
If this wasn’t enough, many ligatures and swashes are added to let you work on your typography even better. All that is achieved while keeping good legibility for the texts.
For a limited time, you can download this awesome script font for only $15.

5 web hosts you should consider for hosting your WordPress blog

image

When looking for hosting your WordPress blog, you will be confronted to so many choices than making a decision will be very hard.

1. Dreamhost

Dreamhost has a WordPress-optimized shared hosting that will work well for most website creators. It is not the cheapest way for hosting your WordPress blog, but it’s one of the best value web host. Dreamhost also get a great custom administration panel and tons of resources like unlimited storage, bandwidth, emails or domains. My favorite part about this web host is how easy it is to upgrade to a VPS or a dedicated server once you need it. dreamhost-wp-hosting

2. Bluehost

Like Dreamhost, Bluehost is recommended in the WordPress codex as one of the good places to go hosting your WordPress blog at. Bluehost will offer you a free domain name, automated backups, unlimited websites hosting and much more, like their $200 in offers if you chose to host your WordPress site with them. bluehost-hosting-for-wp

3. MediaTemple

MediaTemple has for long been very popular among web designers for its awesome user-interface. Now they also provide some hosting services optimized for WordPress users. It’s more expensive than most other web hosts, but at least you can be sure that they don’t oversell. Sans-titre-1

4. WP Engine

WP Engine is probably the best place for hosting your WordPress blog at the moment of writing this article. They use evercache technology to make your site faster, back up your site proactively and even restore it for free. If this wasn’t enough, their plans are customized for WordPress users specifically. Obviously quality comes at a price, and WP Engine is a bit more pricey than the other web hosts mentionned in this post. But it’s worth it, trust me. wp-engine

5. InMotion

US-based hosting with unlimited disk space, unlimited data transfer, and choice of data center location, InMotion is one of the top web hosts for businesses. They also get 24/7 support, so you don’t have to worry about problems. inmotion
