Zvi Narkiss was the graphic designer who created popular Hebrew "fonts" -- and they are named as part of the "Narkiss font family."
Google Translated from PC (Hebrew):
Zvi Narkiss, a senior Israeli graphic artists, passed away yesterday (Sunday) at the age of 89. Narkiss, a native of Romania, moved to Israel in 1944 and dedicated his entire adult life to Hebrew letters, design books and newspapers. Narkiss graduated from the Bezalel school of the arts shortly after he immigrated to Israel, and for years raised generations of graphic artists. In 1955, he opened a design studio focused on designing posters and illustrations.
For years he struggled against various publishers who violated the copyright on his letters and fonts, using similar letters without his permission.
One of them is "Ariel", developed, marketed and distributed in the country without his permission. Only after many years of struggle was a compromise reached, and Narkiss received credit for creating the letters.
He contributed significantly to advancing the status of designers and maintenance of their rights, especially in the digital age, which breached the copyright of designers working on many fonts.
He is survived by two daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. His funeral will take place today (Monday) afternoon in the cemetery of Kibbutz Nachshon, where his daughter lives, Tamar Narkiss - Gal.
