Growing up and living in Israel was very influential to Oded Ezer as a person and as a typographic artist. He explores the rich fusion of historic research, Israeli culture, calligraphy, classic typography, experimentation, storytelling, and science which come into play within his unique body of work. We ask Oded about his first typographic memory and his early inspirations when he was studying at the Bezalel Academy for Arts and Design. Before his studies Oded served in the Israeli Army. We wonder how serving in the Army helped him to begin his career as a designer. We also talk about his ‘Biotypography’ series, like the ‘Typosperm’ project and the first film he did, called ‘Typembrya’. And more recent projects such as ‘Skypetype’ and his future plans. Recorded at the ATypI 2010 conference in Dublin, Ireland.
