Thomas Miller, a pioneering African-American designer who was the grandson of slaves and who helped create Motorola’s “batwing” logo for Chicago’s Morton Goldsholl Associates, has died at 91.

Ed.’s Note: Apologies for any confusion. The linked article is from 2012 not 2014. Still, the facts remain: he did die at 91 and did create said logos. — AV

Aravrit, a typographic project “of a utopian nature” by Liron Lavi Turkenich, combines the upper half of Arabic glyphs with the lower half of Hebrew characters. The name Aravrit itself combines the words for Arabic and Hebrew (“Ivrit”). “In Aravrit, one can read the language he or she chooses, without ignoring the other one, which is always present.” (More about the project here.)
