Word mark, cover artwork design and web site for the Jewish-German band JEWDYSSEE.

JEWDYSSEE
A DESIGN FOR THE ODYSSEE OF THE YIDDISH CLUB SOUND.
In early 2010 the band asked me to create a word mark and a cover art work for their first album release.

The word mark should not only unite Jewish tradition and modernity, but also build a bridge between Jewish and European cultures. 
To achieve this we came along with the idea to work out a font that uses significant visual elements of hebrew type, applied to latin letters. We wanted it to look like a hebrew word at the first glance. But then, if you start to read it it turns out to be something else. A combination of two worlds.

The cover art work was supposed to tell a metaphorical story about the Jewish odyssee: The Jewdyssee.
